Following the early arrival of 200 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, Saint Regis Mohawk Health Services announced it will proceed with their vaccination plans beginning next Tuesday, December 29, 2020.

Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe Health Services Director Michael Cook stated, “Receiving the vaccine earlier than expected is certainly pleasant surprise. We did not expect the distribution would be directly from the manufacturer, which was the case, thus cutting out middle people and getting here faster than expected.” 

In accordance with the U.S. Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention’s recommended guidelines, voluntary vaccinations will commence on Tuesday with frontline healthcare workers, tribal police officers, and other tribal personnel who interact with the public on a daily basis. 

Depending on the number of doses remaining, Health Services announced that vaccinations will be expanded for a second group to receive inoculations on the following Tuesday, January 5th. The second group is open for Seniors ages 65-years-old or more. Interested Seniors can call a new direct line at (518) 333-0230 to add their name to the list.

It is still anticipated that additional doses of the vaccine will be available in April or May for public vaccinations. Please watch for more announcements in the coming weeks.

The first group will receive a Prime shot, which is the first of two shots that needs to administered for the Moderna vaccine. The second shot, or Booster, will be administered 28-days afterwards.
