News Release

Urban Indian Health Institute

Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI) is currently gathering information from American Indians and Alaska Natives through a survey to better understand the knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs regarding the COVID-19 vaccines.

Click here to take the survey. You must be 18 years or older and identify as American Indian/Alaska Native to participate.

The survey ends on December 30 and answers are anonymous. Results will be shared with tribes and Native organizations in January and will be used to inform a COVID-19 vaccine education campaign.

“We need to hear from as many Native people as possible about how they feel about the vaccines,” said Abigail Echo-Hawk (Pawnee), director of Urban Indian Health Institute. “With more feedback, we can create better resources for our people than what currently exists.”

Survey participants will have the option to enter their name to win prizes, which include $50 Amazon gift cards and $500 gift certificates for Bethany Yellowtail, Eighth Generation, Beyond Buckskin, and Manitobah Mukluks.
