Your National Electronic Talking Circle
Monday, April 5, 2021

Many tribes are leading the effort to vaccinate residents against COVID-19.

The Navajo Nation boasts a vaccination rate exceeding 50 percent of its citizens. At the same time, some tribal vaccination efforts are operating below capacity because their citizens remain wary.

Even after watching their relatives and neighbors die of the virus at nearly twice the rate of their white counterparts, some Native Americans are leery of the vaccine.

Native America Calling will look into the source of vaccination misgivings and hear what health officials are doing to overcome them.
