Most tribal clinics offer COVID-19 vaccines to non-Natives


March 12, 2021

The majority of facilities receiving COVID-19 vaccines through the Indian Health Service are providing vaccines to at least some individuals who are not tribal citizens.

People who are not citizens of federally recognized tribes and generally not eligible to receive IHS services are described as non-beneficiaries.

Non-tribal citizens or non-beneficiaries receiving the vaccine at IHS facilities may include tribal employees, teachers, first responders, household members of tribal citizens or all community members, based on local circumstances, according to Joshua Barnett, IHS public affairs specialist.
