The events are open to eligible adults and children and will be taking place from noon to 3 p.m. on Feb. 27 and on March 6 at Shiprock High School.

Both events will have rapid COVID-19 testing and at-home test kits available.

Minors ages 11 to 18 who have missed an immunization can catch-up on recommended vaccinations during the March 6 event and during the week of spring break at the hospital's drive-thru vaccination trailer.
