Nooksack Tribe’s Notable COVID-19 Response Accomplishments Apr. 27 – May 3

  • The Johnson and Johnson vaccine pause was lifted after the US Food and Drug Administration and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced the vaccine is safe, sighting the benefits outweigh the risks in preventing COVID-19.
  • The Nooksack Health Officer encourages youth 16+ to get vaccinated. A majority of cases now are with younger populations. Protecting youth protects vulnerable tribal members. All Nooksack Tribal members can contact the Health Clinic for a COVID-19 vaccine. Call the Clinic at 360-966-2106, or request an appointment online here.
  • Have you been impacted by COVID-19? Find the Health Department’s COVID Assistance Application on our website to see if you are eligible. Assistance is for Nooksack Tribal members residing in Washington State only, and for impacts incurred after January 1, 2021. Funds will be dispersed until exhausted.
  • Do you need help with rental assistance? The Nooksack Emergency Rental Assistance Program is now open. Contact Tiffani Zamudio, Homelessness Resource Manager, at tzamudio@nooksack-nsn.gov or 360-592-0135.
  • The Nooksack Elders Lunch Program at the Elders’ Community Building opened this week, for those fully vaccinated and following safety precautions.
  • The Nooksack Indian Tribe Elders Program will be offering grocery shopping trips four times a month for elders in need of transportation. Elders must provide verification of COVID-19 vaccination and follow safety guidelines.
  • Sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between allergies, wildfire smoke, and COVID-19. Get tested if you have symptoms of COVID by contacting the Health Clinic.
  • With many schools increasing in-person schooling, parents are encouraged to bring their children of any age in for testing at the Nooksack Clinic, M-F 1:30-3 pm. Please call ahead.
