December 18, 2020
White Mountain Apache Tribe Chairwoman Gwendena Lee-Gatewood, San Carlos Apache Chairman Terry Rambler and Red Lake Nation Chairman Darrell Seki were some of the first tribal leaders to share that they received the COVID-19 vaccine.
Lee-Gatewood documented her vaccine Tuesday on her public Facebook page. The Red Lake Tribal Council Facebook page posted photos on Wednesday of elected leadership receiving the vaccine. Rambler posted a short Facebook video Thursday of receiving the vaccine.
The Cass Lake Hospital on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation was the first to administer the vaccine to staff and tribal elders on Monday.
