COVID-19 Vaccines Are Now Available

Due to limited supply, COVID-19 vaccines will be given first to healthcare workers and nursing home residents, followed by other high-risk groups such as essential workers, elders, and adults with high-risk medical conditions such as cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes.


Vaccines may be given to other priority groups as determined by local tribal governments.

COVID-19 Testing

Testing is offered on Wednesdays from 10:00am to 1:00pm. All testing will take place outside of the Clinic. Patients must schedule an appointment for their test and then call upon their arrival. A nurse will come to the patient’s vehicle to perform the test. Patients are requested to wait in their vehicles for test results and further instruction from the nurse.



How to Schedule Your COVID-19 Test

Please call the Lassen Indian Health Center to schedule your COVID-19 test. A receptionist will transfer your call to a nurse who will ask questions to determine your level of risk and eligibility for obtaining a test.






Telehealth Appointments

During this time, we encourage patients to call for more information about making in-person appointments. Telehealth is available for both Medical and Behavioral Health appointments. Different options are available for Telehealth appointments including video-calls as well as telephone calls.
