The Tribal Council voted to expand the vaccine incentive program to include Tribal members (adults and children) and:

  1. All persons who can show proof of employment with the Tribe, a Tribal enterprise, Mescalero Agency – BIA (including BIA – Law Enforcement), or IHS-Mescalero Service Unit (must include a copy of his or her employee ID); and
  2. All persons who can show that they live on the Mescalero Apache Reservation (must show utility or other bill listing the person’s name and address or driver’s license with Mescalero zip code) (including Tribal affiliates, defined as legally-married spouses and biological children of enrolled Tribal Members).

Each eligible person who is fully vaccinated (2 shots for Moderna & Pfizer and 1 shot for Jansen) is eligible for $100. Each eligible person who received a booster (third shot for Moderna & Pfizer and 2nd shot for Jansen) is eligible to receive $200.

The deadline to have received all vaccinations or a booster shot is December 31, 2021. Vaccination cards and other proof of eligibility must be submitted to the front desk at Tribal Offices by February 28, 2022. Individuals that already received an incentive for this program are not eligible to apply again.
