Nishtoohtamihk la michinn avik aen nijhwii (Understanding vaccination)

The Nishtoohtamihk la michinn avik aen nijhwii project aims to better understand vaccine coverage in Métis children in Alberta. Our team, in partnership with the Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA), will quantify vaccine coverage among Métis children in Alberta and examine determinants of vaccine coverage.

Applying an Indigenous intersectional theoretical framework, we will assess attitudes and beliefs about vaccination using a community survey, and calculate vaccine coverage using administrative data. We will also explore barriers and supports to vaccination among Métis families through visiting (keeoukaywin).
