(Kahnawake – 1, Tsothóhrha/December 2021) The Kateri Memorial Hospital Centre (KMHC) and Public Safety Commission are pleased to announce a Vaccination Clinic for COVID-19 booster shots for those aged 70 and over, as well as the first dose for children 5 to 11 years of age. Walk-ins will be accepted or appointments can be made by clicking here.

These Vaccination Clinics will be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall on the following dates:

70+ boosters: Moderna and Pfizer (must be at least 6 months since 2nd dose) and Seasonal Flu Shot:

  • Friday, December 3: 12pm to 8pm
  • Saturday, December 4: 9am to 12pm

First dose for children aged 5-11: (*must be accompanied by a parent or guardian)

  • Saturday, December 4: 1pm to 4:30pm

(Please note: previously announced Vaccination Clinic for 5-11 year age group on December 3rd, has been cancelled)

*A parent/guardian must accompany the child in order to provide informed consent. It is recommended to keep other children/family members at home in an effort to keep the number of people within the vaccination clinic at a minimum.

If a parent/guardian cannot attend the vaccination clinic with their child, a written consent form must be completed and sent with the adult accompanying the child.

A consent form can be downloaded by clicking here.

As previously announced by the Kahnawake Education Center, vaccinations for this age group are not mandatory to attend any school in Kahnawà:ke. However, it is highly encouraged to have your children vaccinated to further decrease their level of risk of COVID-19 complications.
