Vaccination Update!

Another 122 people were vaccinated over the weekend including some of our citizens living in Thompson for a total of 1174 people vaccinated (some have had two doses). We still need to vaccinate about 50% of the adults living in the community as well as our citizens living off-reserve. If we do not use up the doses we have been allocated they will go to another community.

  • All NCN 18 year old citizens living in the community who have not been vaccinated
  • All NCN employees that are non NCN members working in NCN, including their family/household

Please do not wait till the last minute so that our staff are able to do as many vaccinations as possible.  If people come too close to the end of the day then it may not be possible to open another vial as we cannot waste any of the vaccine.

We are in a race to get enough people vaccinated to protect us from the third wave of the pandemic. We all must be very careful as the current variants of teh virus that are circulating can make people, including young people, very sick and lead to death.

Everyone, particularly our healthteam, are working hard to keep our community safe so please do your part. GET VACCINATED!
