National Council of Urban Indian Health and Native American Lifelines Announce DMV Vaccines for Natives
After months of barriers, urban Indians in the DMV will finally be able to get vaccinated.
The National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) and Native American Lifelines (NAL) are pleased to announce the availability of COVID-19 vaccinations for urban Indians in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia metropolitan area. In partnership with the Indian Health Service and University of Maryland – Baltimore, registration is now available for appointments in Baltimore beginning on Wednesday, April 14.
Since last fall, NCUIH and NAL have pushed for inclusion of the 65,000 Natives in the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia Metropolitan Area. As Natives are dying from COVID-19 at the highest rates worldwide, NCUIH has advocated to the federal government to prioritize this population for vaccines.
If you are unable to schedule your appointment online or are in need of transportation assistance, please call Jessica or Bri at Native (410) 837 – 2258 (x102 for Jessica and x106 for Bri). If you have already received one dose of Pfizer and need a second dose, please call the number above to schedule a second dose if you do not see the time available online.
