What is Minnesota Responds?

Minnesota Responds is a partnership that integrates and engages local, regional, and statewide volunteer programs to strengthen public health and health care, reduce vulnerability, build resilience, and improve preparedness, response and recovery capabilities.


Minnesota Responds is no longer accepting volunteer registrations for the State Vaccination Group (SVG). If you are registering as a new volunteer, please request membership in your local public health volunteer unit


Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Minnesota.

We need you to be ready to respond by doing the following:

  • Become a qualified volunteer. Please request membership in your local public health agency’s MRC or volunteer unit and complete your MN.Responds profile. 
  • If you are currently registered in Minnesota Responds, please update your profile and licensing information. 


Thank you for your assistance in protecting the health of our communities. Your willingness to volunteer for your local public health agency and Minnesota is crucial to the success of our preparedness and response efforts.
