COVID-19 Vaccine in Nain (Audio to be added later)

It was an historic day for the five Nunatsiavut Communities last week when the towns were getting their very first COVID-19 Moderna vaccine shots.

The Staff of the Department of Health and Social Development, along with Nunatsiavut Government and Labrador Grenfell Health came together to administer the vaccine to people that started on Monday, January 11, 2021.

The historic day for the residents of Nain was last Friday, January 15th and continued to Saturday, January 16th.

Joanne Pye is the Public Health Nurse in Nain for DHSD.

She says it was a good turnout and a lot of support came from the staff.
