NOTE: COVID vaccines are required of all volunteers who are, or have the potential to ever come on campus and represent HHC in the community. This includes all groups that may have campus-based activity such as Auxiliary members for fundraisers, corporators and Board members for meetings, etc. (As we know each facility is different so some of these groups may be tracked in other departments besides Volunteer Services.)
