Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians
On April 10, the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians hosted a free Community Vaccine Day clinic at the Rolling Hills Casino & Resort parking lot, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., to help the surrounding underserved communities. The tribe administered over 900 Johnson & Johnson one-dose vaccines to residents over the age of 18 from the Tehama, Butte, and Glenn counties.
The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians understood the challenging circumstances the community was experiencing in accessing vaccine appointments easily. To ensure a streamlined process for attendees of the clinic, the Tribe partnered with Hold My Ticket, an industry leader for event management and ticketing solution technologies. Space for the Community Vaccine Day was limited to the first 1,000 registered residents. Although all the spaces were full, a waiting list sign up was made available that notified interested residents if any tickets opened up, as well as accepting walk-ins.
The event brought in people from multiple counties in the region and a range of ages from people who’d recently turned 18 to elderly community members. Additionally, a few folks reported that thay chose to come out to this event because they had been waiting for the one dose vaccine from Johnson & Johnson.
For those still interested and unable to come to Saturday's event, vaccines are still available at Rolling Hills Clinic. To make an appointment, people should call 530-680-2827.
