A shipment of second doses of the Moderna vaccines is arriving in Eeyou Istchee on Monday, April 5. Drop-in vaccination clinics will open their doors in every community on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.

The Drop-In Clinics will be open 7 days a week until April 20, to make sure many people get vaccinated before Goose Break.

People who received their first dose of the Moderna vaccine are invited to come to the Drop-In Clinics to get their second dose. People who still haven’t received their first dose are also welcome at the Drop-In Vaccination Clinics if they choose to get vaccinated.

The first dose protects people against severe forms of COVID-19. The second dose increases the vaccine’s effectiveness, to provide longer-lasting protection.

The Cree Health Board hopes as many people as possible will get their second dose before Goose Break. We invite you to come early and get your shot. If you are currently in isolation, you can get vaccinated in designated Red Zones that are set up with necessary safety measures. Call your CMC for details about Red Zone vaccination.

The Drop-In vaccination clinics will stay open for two weeks in every community, from April 6-20. After that, vaccination will be available by appointment.

CBHSSJB staff and community partners are mobilized for this campaign. Information about where and when to get vaccinated in each community is available on the CreeHealth website, and the information is broadcast on local radio, social media and on posters in the community.

Vaccination is an important layer of protection against COVID-19 and its variants. It is voluntary, safe, and free. The Moderna vaccine helps reduce chances of severe disease and hospitalization, and helps safeguard Eeyou Istchee’s communities and health services.
