Texas Motor Speedway will become the mega COVID-19 vaccination hub from next week.

Denton County leaders are planning to vaccinate 10,000 people per day at TMS until doses run out, and they need volunteer help to pull it off. There are certain positions open that do not require any medical experience.

TMS is being converted into the latest mega vaccination hub. Denton County will use this site to give 31,000 doses provided by the state next week.

Denton County Judge Andy Eads said that the massive administration will need additional staffing. City fire departments will be providing firefighter EMTs to help administer the shots. But he says there's still a need for dozens of volunteers.

He said, "You do not have a medical background. You can help be one of our traffic control individuals or greeters."

"We need many hands to make the work light."

Folks can register on Denton County's website under the Medical Reserve Corp tab.

While there, Judge Eads says people can also get on the waiting list for an appointment. No walk-ins will be taken at the drive-thru site.

Volunteers are in growing demand as cities and counties ramp-up dosing at hub locations.
