The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Department of Health, in partnership with Indian Health Service, will offer first-doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to all Native Americans 18 years and older, non-Native family members and caregivers of Native households.

The event will be held March 26 through 27 at Tulsa’s Expo Square, River Spirit Expo Center at 4145 E. 21st Street in Tulsa. Individuals must book an appointment by March 24 either online at www.creekhealth.org/covidvaccine or by calling the Tribe’s Vaccine Information Line at 918-758-3601.

“Native Americans have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic, and we are committed to helping Native people and their loved ones,” said Shawn Terry, Muscogee (Creek) Nation Secretary of Health. “We have administered nearly 21,000 first and second doses of COVID vaccinations to healthcare employees, frontline workers, Muscogee elders, citizens and high-risk patients. We are pleased to partner with IHS to make an additional 4,000 vaccines available to a broader population.”

The pandemic has hit Native American communities hard. A CDC report confirms COVID-19 incidences more than triple among Native Americans. “The results are not just the lingering effects of the illness but the heartbreaking loss of elders, our tradition keepers and language speakers,” said Terry. “Protecting tribal generations starts with building a COVID-19 defense. The vaccines have been tested in large clinical trials to ensure they are safe and effective.”
