COVID Vaccines available for Families

Dear all,

The city and county are working very hard to make the vaccine available to as many people as possible, and we still need to get the word out about our clinics. There may be community members who think that they can’t access the vaccine because they don’t have an ID or health insurance. This is not the case. The following clinics prioritize BIPOC community members and don’t require ID.

The drive-thru clinics are located at the closed Kmart Parking Lot at 4500 NE 122nd Ave. No ID is required.

Interested folx can get an appointment at the following sign-up links:

Karen Kitchen (Osage Nation) performed at our 2019 DD Native Cultural Night at Fir Ridge. Karen is a forever teacher, served as an Indian Education Program Coordinator and currently shares and hosts Native Story Hour once a month via Multnomah County Library.

Families can request support from our Family Help Desk (Phone: 503.261.8391 e-Mail: family_help_desk@ddsd40.org) but in all actuality there is very little that the DDSD team can do to support weak/slow/spotty Wi-Fi in the home.  Our recommendation is to call your internet provider and ask for assistance.

Counselor’s Corner:

Here are some Wellness tips:

1. Sleep: make sure you are getting enough of it. It can really affect your stress levels

2. Exercise: it is super important to get outside when you can and at least go for a walk

3. Give yourself Grace: Be kind to yourself, try not to be too hard on yourself, this is a very difficult time and we are all trying our best. 

4. Routine: Having a schedule for yourself helps reduce stress 

5. Stay connected: Even though it’s a lot harder at this time, it’s important to try to reach out and connect with family and friends. 

6. Gratitude: Focusing on positive things can actually change your mood. It takes practice and sometimes it can be hard to find positive things but the more you do the easier it gets.
