Loleta— 10/12/2021 — The Wiyot Tribal Council approved a vaccination incentive program for all tribal citizens. This program will be funded with additional CARES Act funding that the Tribe received this year.
This incentive program is meant to encourage vaccination of tribal citizens and to gather information about rates of vaccination amongst the Wiyot Community. Each proof of COVID-19 vaccination would be eligible to receive $100 up to $300. This is a voluntary, ongoing program that will continue as vaccinations become available younger citizens.
To receive the incentive, citizens must submit an application to the Wiyot Health and Human Services staff who will process the applications ensuring that individuals are enrolled tribal citizens. The medical records (immunization records) will be treated confidentially and used to collect vaccination rate data only. Applications can be found at: https://www.wiyot.us/DocumentCenter/View/3195/COVID-19-Vaccination-Incentive-Program-applicationpdf.
