“I want more!” said a laughing Wekweekti Chief Charlie Football, just after he received his Moderna shot on Wednesday, making him the first member of the community to be vaccinated.

Football’s comment elicited applause from the medical staff and other people in the Tlicho community’s Youth Centre, where dozens of Wekweeti residents filed in for their Covid-19 vaccinations.
“I’m excited. I just want to show my people that I could do it,” Football said.
Chief public health officer Dr. Kami Kandola was the second person in the Youth Centre to get the Covid shot.
