On March 20, the Wind River Family and Community Health Care is holding another mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Riverton. To bring people in, the clinic is entering everyone who gets vaccinated in a drawing for gift cards.

Lisa Yawakia, communication specialist for Wind River Cares, said the tribe-run organization immunized 100 people at their last clinic.

"The last one we did was in Arapaho. We are looking to do this one here in Riverton. To reachout to our different service populations," Yawakia said.

Wind River Cares hopes to reach the Native population in Riverton over the weekend. Yawakia said that those who get immunized at the event will be entered in drawings for gift card.

"We will be getting names and numbers of everyone getting vaccinated to put their name in a drawing for some gift cards and some prizes to give away. We thought it would be something fun to do on a Saturday," she said.

The clinic will be accepting anyone who is a tribal member, a decedent, or anyone who lives with a Native person. The event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
