Vaccinations open to immediate family members of employees at CTUIR enterprises and entities

MISSION – Nearly a week after announcing COVID-19 vaccinations would open to CTUIR employees and Reservation residents, the Tribe announced it is opening up opportunities to immediate family members of employees at Tribal enterprises and entities.

“After reviewing ‘Mass Vaccination’ registration numbers with Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center, we have determined that we will open up vaccine registration for the CTUIR entity family members (immediate household),” CTUIR Interim Executive Director Chuck Sams said Thursday.

A new drop-down menu entry for “employee or family member” has been added to the sign-up form, found here: :

Family members will need a copy of their immediate family member’s employee badge for verification at the vaccination site, Wildhorse Resort & Casino, Feb. 23-24.

“We are working hard to ensure the safety of our community, work force and families,” Sams said in an email broadcast to Tribal employees.

The minimum age for vaccination is 16.
