The Red Lake Hospital continues to provide on-demand COVID-19 vaccines as well as COVID testing at the drive-thru building by the hospital. Vaccines and COVID testing are available from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday. Ponemah clinic provides vaccines on Tuesdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

If you feel ill, please feel free to go to the drive-thru testing site to take a COVID test. And, if you have tested positive for COVID, it is VERY IMPORTANT to follow the isolation directions from the Contact Tracing Team. This will help control the spread of the virus.

The COVID-19 vaccine is another form of protection for you. As we all know, a vaccinated person can still contract COVID, but more than likely, a vaccinated person might not become as sick as an un-vaccinated person.

It is urged for everyone, ages 12 and up, to get vaccinated. We all need to protect each other, especially our children that aren't old enough to be vaccinated and our members that have a compromised or weak immune system. The vaccine is our best defense against COVID-19.
