FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - In lieu of the traditional White House Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn, the White House is sending the official wooden Easter eggs to community health centers across the country that are currently serving as vaccination sites in underserved communities. The sites will share the eggs with front line workers, volunteers and members of the community who get vaccinated to share with their children or children in their lives.

Among the health centers and organizations marked to receive these shipments was the Eastern Aleutian Tribes, located in False Pass, Alaska. Eastern Aleutian Tribes received two boxes, each containing 400 commemorative Easter eggs.
