AKWESASNE — The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is reporting no new cases of COVID-19 today — leaving eight (8) total active cases under the Tribe’s jurisdiction. No community members were released from isolation and eighteen (18) family members and friends remain in quarantine. We extend them best wishes for a safe and complication-free recovery.

One hundred and ten (110) Prime vaccinations were conducted this week by Saint Regis Mohawk Health Services — making 3,040 individuals who have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. One hundred and ninety-six (196) Boosters were conducted for 1,969 individuals receiving their second shot. A total of 5,009 vaccinations have been administered by Health Services. A huge appreciation is extended to our healthcare workers for doing an amazing job helping to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Saint Regis Mohawk Health Services is holding COVID-19 Walk-in Vaccine Clinics every Thursday from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. (Noon), or until supplies last, at the former-IGA Building located at 850 State Route 37 in Akwesasne, NY. The walk-in vaccine clinic is open to all individuals 18-years or older who are interested in receiving the Moderna vaccine.

Individuals ages 16 and 17-years old are asked to schedule an appointment to receive the Pfizer vaccine by calling (518) 333-0230. Please leave your name, brief message, and a good telephone number for a health worker to contact you when more Pfizer doses become available. Please help prevent any doses from being wasted by ensuring that you attend your vaccination appointment.

Non-native spouses of Tribal Members and Akwesasne employees who reside in Canada are also eligible to receive a vaccination by appointment only. Canadian residents need to call Katrina Jacobs, Office of Emergency Management and Safety, at (518) 358-2272 extension 2210 for border crossing requirements.

Please get vaccinated and help those who cannot receive the vaccine, such as young children and those with immunocompromised conditions. Being vaccinated protects yourself, them, and helps us get one step closer to having community immunity and returning to normal. We’re still all in this together.

As a reminder, Akwesasne residents and employees can schedule a COVID-19 test by calling Mountain Medical Urgent Care in Malone at (518) 521-3322 or their Massena facility at (315) 705-0700. Please keep in mind that individuals awaiting test results cannot receive the COVID-19 Vaccine.
