Drug makers will start distributing doses of the vaccine against the coronavirus within days.

Tribes, along with the Indian Health Service, have distribution plans in place that put health care workers and elders at the front of the line. It could be many more months before it’s available for many citizens.

Native America Calling will get updates on the latest information and perspectives on the coronavirus vaccine.
