Mobile vaccination clinic offers free COVID-19 vaccines to the public

RAPID CITY, S.D. — FEMA is joining with the Indian Health Service and Oyate Health Center to provide free covid-vaccinations they’ll be administered through a mobile clinic in Rapid City.

The shots are available to anyone 18-years of age and older, with no appointment needed. Those who are younger than 18 can receive the vaccine with parental consent.

The mobile clinic can distribute 250 doses a day either first or second shots of the Pfizer vaccine as well as the one shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

Patricia Pudwill, FEMA operations task force lead said “we wanna get shots in arms, get the through puts out there and provide a service that’s available to everybody. Again it was a partnership with IHS and Oyate at least here for the Rapid City area but also across all the tribal IHS facilities across the state.”

The mobile clinic will be stationed tomorrow at Mount Rushmore road and Omaha form 8 a.m. — 3 p.m. The clinic will make a stop at the Prairie Wind Casino in Pine Ridge on Thursday and Friday.
