COVID-19 Vaccine for Musqueam Members
Second doses completed in early June
Close to 1,000 community members received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in March.
Musqueam began providing members with their second dose starting on May 25, 2021.
Musqueam’s leadership and health department worked hard to advocate for enough vaccines for the entire Musqueam community. We are pleased to have reached our goal of fully immunizing all of Musqueam against COVID-19.
If you are Indigenous, but not a Musqueam band member, visit BC’s vaccination booking page for information on how to get vaccinated.
Approved vaccines are free, and there are currently two vaccines approved in Canada:
At this time, neither vaccine is approved for children. We do not know which vaccine will be available to Musqueam yet, but members aged 16+ are encouraged to register in the event that Musqueam is allocated the Pfizer vaccine.
