Montana First Nation gifts surplus vaccine to Alberta Treaty 7 members

CARDSTON, AB – The Montana Blackfeet Nation is sharing its leftover COVID-19 vaccines with members of southern Alberta’s Treaty 7 First Nation.

A media release shared by the local Blackfoot Confederacy says the mobile Medicine Line Vaccine Clinic will be available at the Carway/Peigan border until 3:00 Wednesday afternoon (Apr. 21) for first and second doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine.

Members of Montana’s Blackfeet Nation have already been immunized over the past few months and they’re currently reporting zero active infections. That’s why they’ve decided to share their surplus of vaccines.

All Treaty 7 members and Cardston area residents 16 and older who want to be immunized are asked to bring their passport or Indian Status card in order to enter the United States side of the Carway/Peigan crossing. Those who’ve already had their first dose must also bring their immunization record to get their second dose.

This program does not allow you to cross the international border and proceed into Montana, though. Rather, you’ll be guided through a corridor inside the border office, receive your vaccine, then be brought back to the Canadian side of the border.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
