Peace Corps announces second-ever domestic deployment to assist with vaccination efforts | TheHill

The Peace Corps is preparing to roll out its second-ever domestic deployment, recruiting volunteers to help assist with COVID-19 vaccination efforts.

The move is the first time since Hurricane Katrina in 2005 that the Peace Corps, which sends volunteers to serve in 61 countries around the world, will be deploying teams to help fellow Americans.

It comes a year after the Peace Corps evacuated all of its roughly 7,300 volunteers around the globe due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The program will only be open to evacuated volunteers, who will be serving in various Federal Emergency Management Agency posts.
