Sault Tribe offering COVID-19 vaccine booster shots

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. —Per the recommendation of the CDC, COVID-19 vaccine booster shots will be available through Sault Tribe hosted COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics. At this time, booster shots are recommended for immunocompromised patients along with those who live with or are in regular contact with them.

All vaccinations are open to the public. If you are interested in getting a booster shot, please go online to register at www.saulttribehealth.com or call 906‑632‑5200.

Registering youth for COVID-19 vaccine

Although vaccination for 12- to 15-year olds will not yet be available, the information obtained through registration will help determine the level of interest in a COVID-19 vaccination for youth and assist in planning future mass vaccination events. Please visit saulttribehealth.com to register your youth.
