Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe COVID-19 Moderna Vaccination Plan

COVID-19 vaccinations will be administered according to the following plan, which is based off the CDC guidelines. Individuals from each group will either be administered or offered the vaccine prior to moving onto the next group.

Scheduling will take place on a rolling basis as we receive vaccines. We cannot schedule unless we have the vaccine on-site.  Orders for vaccines are placed on a weekly basis through IHS and not guaranteed until delivery is received.

We are exploring an alternate option for vaccination ordering, which may allow us to receive larger quantities and move through the groups faster, and allow for community members faster access.

Please remain patient and understanding with the process. 

You must call the clinic at 360.452.6252 to be placed on the schedule, please call during your scheduling time frame.
