AAIP Vaccination Campaign Initiative
Increasing vaccinations is one way to ensure our tribal cultures survive and are preserved for future generations.
Today, American Indian/Alaska Native physicians across the country are committed to that same mission. One purpose of the Association of American Indian Physicians is “To pursue excellence in Native American health care by promoting education in the medical disciplines, honoring traditional healing principles and restoring the balance of mind, body and spirit”. The organization provides programs that directly address widely acknowledged disparities in American Indian and Alaska Native health, and works to collaborate and respect traditional healing practices.
COVID-19 vaccination message from AAIP Physicians
- It helps protect you, your family and your community from COVID-19.
- Fully vaccinated individuals generally can engage in activities they had to stop because of the pandemic.
For decades, members of American Indian and Alaska Native communities were categorized as “other”; however, when we come together for our health and community, we acknowledge the vibrant diversity and resilience of our people.
