All Times Eastern

Date: Friday, October 30, 2020
Time: 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM Eastern Time
Please join NIHB for an important informational call to learn more about the Indian Health Service’s (IHS) COVID-19 Pandemic Vaccine Draft Plan which was released October 14. Agency representatives will provide an overview of the plan, share a summary of Tribal comments they have received on it, and outline an expected timeline for finalizing the plan. NIHB will also be joined by representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CDC will provide information on the process states are following to submit their vaccine plans, and an update on the progress to date. After these presentations, participants will be given an opportunity to ask questions. NIHB urges all Tribes to participate in the call, but for those that cannot join us live, we will post a recording of the session on our website so that Tribes can access the materials after the event.
