On February 9th, Kapawe’no held its first phase of the vaccination for the age category of 65+ Kapaweno Residents. A total of 20 First shot vaccinations were completed with the second dose set to be provided on March 22, for all those individuals who received the first dose. Only those who received the first dose will be booked for this clinic.
Kapawe’no received the Moderna Vaccine and will continue to receive the Moderna Vaccine until such time as all of the residents over the age of 18 years have been given the opportunity to be vaccinated.
Vaccine distribution for First Nations in Alberta began in early January 2021. Kapawe'no First Nation started the roll-out of vaccinations in February 2021 for members living on-reserve over the age of 65. We are continuing to work with Alberta Health Services to continue our effort to provide the vaccine to more individuals.
At this time, Kapawe'no First Nation will only be vaccinating on-reserve members based on the decision by the Province of Alberta.
