The Fairfax County Health Department is hiring staff to support its COVID-19 vaccination and pandemic response efforts. Specifically, the agency is looking for Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses, and Licensed Practical Nurses to join its vaccination team on a part-time, temporary basis.
These individuals will join a team of health care professionals to administer vaccinations and perform other response roles with the ultimate goal of stopping the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
Interested persons can apply online. The Health Department plans to hire 100 individuals.
“As we continue through this vaccination campaign, we need to ramp-up our team of health care professionals so we are prepared to continue to administer vaccine on a mass scale particularly when greater supply is available and as more people become eligible,” said Emergency Planning Coordinator Stephanie Nikola, Fairfax County Health Department. “Our community has consistently risen to each challenge this pandemic has presented. Now, once again, we have an opportunity to call upon our community to make a difference.”
Candidates who are interested must have experience providing immunization care and possess a current license or a multistate licensure privilege to practice as a Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, Registered Nurse, or Licensed Practical Nurse in the Commonwealth of Virginia, as well as a valid driver’s license. Candidates must be willing to work 8 to 12 hour shifts, weekdays and/or weekends, on a flexible schedule.
