SWO Covid-19 Vaccination Incentive Program
Frequently Asked Questions
Whats the amount?
Where can I get an application?
The applications will be available on Tuesday, September 7th at 8:00 a.m. at the tribal building near boxes by the front door. They will also be available on the tribe's website http://www.swo-nsn.gov.
Am I eligible for this program?
This program is specifically designed to stop or lessen the spread of Covid-19 within the reservation, so this includes only the Sisseton IHS service area, so if you live within this area, you are eligible. At the end of this document is the Sisseton IHS service area. Also, many employers across the country are providing incentives for the vaccinated.
Are there separate applications for children and adults?
Yes. If you have children 12 - 17 who are vaccinated and you are applying for the SWO Covid-19 Vaccination Incentive on their behalf, each child must have a separate form, filled out and signed by the parent or guardian.
I only recieved one shot. Can I still get the incentive?
No. Unless you received the Johnson and Johnson vaccination, you must have received both immunizations (for Pfizer and Moderna).
Is there anything that needs to be attached to my adult application?
Yes, for adults, you must attach your immunization record. For those who utilize the Indian Health Service, you may go to the Medical Records office and sign a Release of Information form. If you received one or more of your immunizations at another facility, you must also go to the medical records office and they will download your records.
You must also attach a copy of your SWO tribal identification card or an enrollment verification document.
You must also attach proof that you reside within the Sisseton IHS service area. See the end of this document for the list of counties which are included in the service area.
Is there anything that needs to be attached to my child's application?
Yes, you must attach their immunization record and their enrollment verification.
In addition, for children you must attach documents that show that the child(ren) lives with you. The accepted forms are:
1. A custody/court order which gives you custody.
2. School records which have both your name and the child's name.
3. A child support court order.
4. A TANF verification letter.
5. An income tax form.
6. State Dept of Social Services & Medical benefits letters/forms.
Where can I make copies of my attachments?
You can make copies in the post office at the tribal administration building.
I provided my children's documents in my previous application, can you make copies?
What if I was overpaid in either of the first two EFA programs or the program currently being run?
Any overpayments will be deducted from this program, up to and including the entire amount.
Will lists be posted on FaceBook and, can I pick up my check?
No. All checks will be mailed out as soon as they are printed.
I received my vaccination at another IHS facility or another health care facility. Will my vaccinations be up to date and printable at the Sisseton Clinic?
You may need to contact other IHS facilities and/or health care facilities who administered your vaccine to ask them to update your records.
