Attention: Alabama NAHN Members
We are sharing the notice below on behalf of the Jefferson County Department of Public Health, in furtherance of our state’s continuing efforts to protect Alabama citizens from COVID-19.

The Jefferson County Department of Health (JCDH) is currently working with the Alabama Department of Health (ADPH) to develop plans to vaccinate Jefferson County residents when a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available.  As the local health department, JCDH is responsible for coordination of a pandemic vaccine response with other organizations in our area which includes providing vaccinators to staff Point of Dispensing (POD) sites such as mass vaccination and drive-thru clinics. 
We are currently recruiting Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified Medical Assistants and Paramedics who are interested in working on a temporary basis to ensure residents of our county are vaccinated.  Primary job duties will include conducting interviews, administering intramuscular, subcutaneous and/or intradermal injections, disinfection of work area, and vaccine inventory and storage.

Hours of operation will vary and may include weekdays, evenings and weekends.   We are open to part-time and full-time hours.  We anticipate the work lasting approximately three months but it may continue for longer.  These are temporary positions so no benefits are available.
