CASPER, Wyo. — The Northern Arapaho Business Council announced on Monday, September 27 that it is celebrating reaching a milestone in getting tribal members vaccinated against COVID-19.

At least 70% of Northern Arapaho tribal members are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. In order to celebrate the milestone and reward members who have been vaccinated, the Northern Arapaho Business Council said it is offering a reward to those vaccinated members of the tribe.

Each member who has been vaccinated against COVID-19 is eligible for a $500 payment. Tribal members who wish to receive the reward need to complete an application by Friday, October 15.

Members will need to show proof of vaccination in order to receive the reward. The Northern Arapaho Business Council said that applications should be submitted:

  • In person to the Little Winds Loan Office at the Wind River Hotel & Casino
  • Via fax at 1-866-602-2887

Members who have not yet been vaccinated can still get the $500 reward if they get vaccinated by October 15, according to the Northern Arapaho Business Council.

“Thank you for your continued assistance in our effort to protect members from COVID-19,” the Northern Arapaho Business Council said. “With your help, we will beat this virus — and rebuild stronger than ever.”

The Wyoming Department of Health provides COVID-19 case, variant, death, testing, hospital and vaccine data online. The department also shares information about how the data can be interpreted. COVID-19 safety recommendations are available from the CDC.
