Medical Information

  • Tetnus Shot is required to volunteer. If you are not currently up to date on your Tetnus vaccinations, you must be willing to get vaccinated before your trip or during your trip. Red Cross often offers free vaccinations on site!
  • Insurance OR a completed insurance waiver is required. If you do not have insurance, see the “Required Forms” section to download a waiver

Poured Out recognizes that each volunteer will assume their own risk in regards to which medications and vaccinations they get in preparation for their trip. While some volunteers take all preventative measures, others stick to the basics/required vaccines and medications. Talk to your physician about what’s right for you.
