NWAL COVID Working Group launches “Facts Not Fear” website; Provides accurate information about the COVID19 vaccine

The Native Waters on Arid Lands (NWAL) COVID19 Working Group has launched an information campaign called “Facts Not Fear” to help supply accurate information and educational resources about the new COVID19 vaccines for Tribal members and extension experts located across Indian Country.

The need for accurate information about the COVID19 vaccines was identified during weekly calls organized by the COVID19 working group, which gathers federal agency sponsors, tribal partners, and extension experts to identify urgent issues and recommend actions to help lessen the effects of the pandemic on Native communities.

By answering questions and dispelling rumors around the COVID19 vaccines, the NWAL team is working to equip individuals across Indian Country with the information that they need to make decisions based on facts, not fear.
