Feb 23, 2021

AKWESASNE — The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is reporting two (2) new cases of COVID-19 — making 48 total active cases under the Tribe’s jurisdiction. Three (3) community members have resolved however, 39 family members and friends are in quarantine at home to prevent further spread. One (1) relative remains hospitalized and we extend them wishes for a safe recovery. We want everyone to remain health and safe during this difficult time, so please answer the call if you’re contacted by public health.

Another round of vaccinations will take place this week by appointment-only. For those who will be receiving their first shot you may have some side effects, but these are normal signs that your body is building protection. Some common side effects are a soreness or discomfort at the injection area, fever, chills, tiredness and/or headache. Please call your healthcare provider for any severe allergic reactions or side effects that do not go away.

At this time, vaccination pre-registrations are still being taken for enrolled tribal members (40-years old or more) living in Akwesasne’s southern portion or within the Tribe’s 15-mile radius in the United States. Those who have been diagnosed with diabetes are highly encouraged to call and schedule an appointment, as well as non-members who reside in an eligible person’s tribal household. To pre-register, please call (518) 333-0230. Do not assume you are scheduled until you talk to someone directly. (Individuals awaiting COVID-19 test results cannot receive the vaccine.)

If you have a non-emergency matter, please call the Emergency Operations Center at (518) 320-0019; Monday-Friday, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
