Nooksack Tribe’s Notable COVID-19 Response Accomplishments Mar. 2 – Mar. 8

  • The Nooksack Clinic hosts the first youth vaccine clinic with the Pfizer vaccine, approved for ages 16-17. The Moderna vaccine is for ages 18+. For an appointment, contact the Clinic or fill out our online form here, to be connected directly with a nurse.
