  • Family members in the same household as White Earth Tribal members, enrolled or descendants.

Those prohibited from receiving the vaccine are those who have tested positive for COVID-19. COVID-positive individuals must meet all criteria to discontinue isolation before any vaccine is administered. Those under quarantine protocol due to a recent exposure must complete the full quarantine procedure and not be exhibiting any symptoms.

Also, any individuals feeling sick or running a fever must wait until the symptoms subside without the assistance of medication, and any individuals who have received other vaccines within the last 14 days must wait two weeks before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
