“We know that due to issues of supply, access, and the logistics of such events, people in rural areas are struggling to get vaccinated,” Vazquez stated. “That’s why J.C. and I are working together to produce this Native Pride pop-up on the Tallchief Territory. The important thing is to get this news out to the people of the Cattaraugus and Allegany Territories, as well as those in the surrounding communities, to ensure that all 400 vaccines will be distributed.”
