Today’s announcement is critical for the future health and safety of our community. I am so pleased to announce we will be receiving 1590 doses of the Moderna vaccine tomorrow around noon and once they thaw out our dedicated health team will start vaccinating.

The Multi-Plex has been set up to accommodate 40 vaccinations an hour. There are 4 rows for 10 people each – all properly physically distanced. Everyone must wear a mask and a short sleeve shirt. If you have a health card, please bring it with you. Also, please fill out your CONSENT FORM in advance to avoid delays and lineups. Staff from Family and Community Wellness Centre will be available to assist with consent forms.

I can’t stress enough how important it is that EVERYONE in our community as well as all NCN Citizens living off-reserve GET VACCINATED NOW. Any unused vaccine will be sent to another community if we do not use them. Our lives and the lives of our family and friends depend on this. We all want to get back to having normal lives.

Vaccination Clinics for the first dose will be held as follows:

  • Thursday, March 25th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
  • Friday, March 26th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
  • Monday, March 29th to Thursday, April 2nd from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm

The Canadian military will be here next week to assist our local team. Second doses will arrive in about 4 to 6 weeks. More information for NCN Citizens off-Reserve will be provided as soon as it is available.
