Chief Greg Nadjiwon and Dr. Ian Arra speak in this video recorded at the second COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Neyaashiinigmiing. The Chief and Dr. Arra discuss the success of our COVID-19 mitigations and upcoming steps in our vaccination plan.

The return to normalcy for the community begins with the safe, proven effective COVID-19 vaccine. If you have an pre-existing health condition, please check with your health care provider or the Nawash Health Centre about whether the vaccine is right for you. We urge every adult 18 years and older, who is recommended to receive the vaccine, to be vaccinated at one of our upcoming clinics.
