Native News Online is hosting a Native-centered live stream on Zoom via Facebook Live on February 25. The program is designed to create vaccination awareness and vaccine hesitancy in Indian Country.
The one-hour forum, Covid-19 Vaccinations in Indian Country, will feature health experts, including Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez, Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin, Jr., Dr. Melvina McCabe (Diné), retired professor and researcher at University of New Mexico Medical School and Stacy A. Bohlen (Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians), CEO, National Indian Health Board.
As with the rest of the country, relief is needed. Much hope for relief exists because of vaccines that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
However, there is a question of how hesitant American Indians will be to take the vaccine. Join us for this informative and timely one-hour forum.
Covid-19 Vaccinations in Indian Country will be co-hosted by Publisher Levi Rickert (Potawatomi) and Managing Editor Kyle Edwards (Anishinaabe).
