Native America Calling
March 24, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Today, March 24– Vaccine availability: it depends on where you are
The Navajo Nation says it’s vaccinated more than 20% of enrolled citizens. That’s compared to just 12% of the United States population. Despite successful vaccine rollouts by many tribes, some Native people living in urban areas are finding access to the vaccine elusive. Some travel thousands of miles to get the shot on their home reservations. Others have to wait it out. The National Indian Health Board is asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to prioritize vaccine distribution to the estimated 4,000 Native Americans in Washington, D.C. because the Indian Health Service cannot adequately tend to them. We’ll get an update on where vaccine distribution is working and where it’s not.
