Lansing Vaccine Clinic Recap

Our LTBB Vaccine Clinic was a great success!

Our team of staff and volunteers vaccinated 60 people with their primary dose of Moderna vaccine.

It was great to see LTBB Tribal Citizens, descendants, other Native Americans, and Lansing area community members come in say hello and to get their vaccine.

We received positive press coverage for this event via the Lansing State Journal, WLNS TV, and the Michigan Advance (an online publication).  Our thanks to the State of Michigan for spreading the word to help this coverage happen.
