Through a partnership with Indian Health Services, Hunter Health will begin providing both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to the Indigenous Peoples Community aged 55 and older beginning on Tuesday, January 19th.

They will be by appointment only on a first-come, first-served basis at the Central Clinic at 527 N. Grove in Wichita.

There will be no out-of-pocket cost to receive the vaccine, and you do not need to be a current patient of the Hunter Health. Individuals will need to provide Native American verification.

According to an analysis published by the CDC (, American Indian and Alaska Native people have died as a result of COVID-19 or COVID-19 related complications at nearly twice the rate of white people in a sample of 14 states.

Native Americans aged 55 and up can call (316) 262-2415 from 8am to 8pm Monday through Friday to schedule an appointment.
