Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and will need a signed consent form from a parent or legal guardian to receive COVID-19 vaccinations.

COVID-19 vaccinations and other vaccinations (such as influenza, pneumonia, etc.) can now be administered simultaneously.
COVID booster shots (Pfizer and Moderna) are also available for:
• People aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions
• People aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting
Some of the Underlying Medical Conditions include the following:
Tribal Health providers encourage everyone to get vaccinated because it is a key step in saving lives and ending the pandemic.
The full benefits of immunity are not reached until two weeks after the second dose of the COVID vaccine, so as cases of COVID remain high, Tribal Health reminds everyone that it is critical now to physically distance, wear a mask and wash your hands. Also, minimize gatherings, and delay travel if possible.
