Kwanischiss – Shäw Nithän – Gunałchish!

Thank you to the entire community for your help with the very successful COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Dakwäkäda/Haines Junction this week.

February 3 and 4, 2021 at Da Kų Cultural Centre were remarkable, historic days.  More than 650 people were immunized during the clinic!  We look forward to the official numbers and percentage immunized to come from Dr. Hanley and his team.

Thanks first to every individual from Dakwäkäda/Haines Junction, Tthe Yanlin/Canyon, Shadhäla/Champagne, and Takhina/Takhini River Subdivision who chose to come get the vaccine and so graciously welcomed Team Togo to our community.

We also thank the many community partners who worked tirelessly to make the clinic accessible to as many people as possible:

  • Mobile vaccine Team Togo
  • The Village of Haines Junction
  • Haines Junction Interagency Committee and community partners
  • Canadian Rangers
  • Government of Yukon
  • Haines Junction Health Centre

Special thanks to Nurse-in-Charge Meghann Willard who answered our MANY questions about the Moderna vaccine, and put doses in arms along with nurse Laura during the clinic. 

Most importantly, we thank our CAFN team members who dedicated a tremendous level of time, effort and genuine care to make sure CAFN people were well-informed and could access the vaccine.  These individuals continue to work to immunize every adult CAFN Citizen in the Yukon who wants to receive the vaccine.   

  • CAFN staff
  • Community Wellness staff
  • Dän Tsʼän Shānindhän (Caring People) COVID-19 checkpoint team
  • Citizen support at the clinic: Tracy Kane, Trish George and Richard Smith
  • COVID Coordinator Kari Johnston
  • COVID-19 Coordinating Committee
