No stranger to vaccines

Johnny Watt, a resident of Tusajiapik Elders’ Home in Kuujjuaq, was the first person in Nunavik to be vaccinated against COVID-19 on Sunday, Jan. 17. Watt has a history with vaccines: he helped deliver the measles vaccines to camps by dogsled team in the early 1950s. Nunavik received its first batch of 1,000 doses of Moderna’s vaccine this past weekend. Immunization will begin in the region’s other communities this week. (Photo courtesy of the NRBHSS)
