Originally posted on Cabin Radio

The Tłı̨chǫ community of Wekweètì held its first Covid-19 vaccine clinic on Wednesday, inviting all eligible residents over the age of 18 to get inoculated against the coronavirus responsible for the disease.

The fly-in community is one of the first in the territory and the Tłı̨chǫ region to receive the vaccine. Its remote location places residents within a priority group according to the NWT’s vaccine rollout strategy.

Three nurses and two logisticians – responsible for coordinating care of the vaccine and checking in clients – escorted 110 doses of Moderna’s vaccine to the community.
