COVID Vaccines with Dr Evan Adams

January 07, 2021

With First Nations COVID cases spiking, Dr Evan Adams, Deputy-Chief Medical Officer at Indigenous Services Canada, joins National Chief Perry Bellegarde to discuss the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines to First Nations. They talk about why the vaccine is safe and necessary, the different brands of vaccine, when they will become widely available, and why COVID numbers have shot so high among First Nations, especially on the prairies.

A big thanks goes out to the Red Dog Singers of Treaty 4 Territory in Saskatchewan for our theme music.
