Hepatitis A Vaccine available
The Warm Springs reservation,
along with the County and State,
experiences outbreaks of Hepatitis A
from time to time. Hepatitis A is a
viral disease that is transmitted
through fecal contamination and oral
ingestion. It is often a result of poor
handwashing. It can spread readily
in households and daycare centers.
It is not the same as Hepatitis B,
which is also a viral disease. Hepati
tis B is spread by contact with in
fected blood or bodily fluids. A vac
cine for Hepatitis B was developed
several years ago and is given to
children as a series of three shots
beginning usually as an infant.
The good news is that a vaccine
for Hepatitis A has now been devel
oped and will provide immunity for
children two years and older. This
vaccine is also given as a series of
three shots over a six-months period.
Children who have had Hepatitis A
are immune and do not need the vac
cine. The IHS clinic will be offering the
Hepatitis A vaccine in the near future
initially to children two to five years
of age. Please watch for an an-

April 12 ceremony marks first steelhead release
The Hood River Fisheries Project
is aimed at restoring spring chinook
salmon and summer and winter
steelhead populations in the Hood
River. Planning for the project began
in 1988 and has been developed
cooperatively by the Confederated
Tribes of Warm Springs, The Oregon
Department of Fish and Wildlife
(ODFW)and the Bonneville Power
Administration (BPA). The project
utilizes releases of juvenile hatchery
fish into the native habitat of the
Hood River. When these fish return
to the river as adults, they will spawn
naturally in the Hood River.
To increase their chances of
surviving the hatchery fish will be
"acclimated" in temporary ponds
along the Hood River. Acclimating
refers to ponding fish near their
release location for a short period so
they can recover from the stress of
being transported from the hatchery
and adjust to the waters of their new
Hatchery fish have been released
into the Hood River for many years
under a traditional hatchery program
by the Oregon Department of Fish
and Wildlife. The new program will
be different in that native stocks will
be used when possible and all fish
will be acclimated prior to release.
This should result in the higher
survival of hatchery fish and create
more harvest opportunities.
The Confederated Tribes of Warm
Springs has been the lead agency in
this project and has worked closely
with many different organizations
for many years to get the project off
the ground. On April 12 a ceremony
was heldto recognize the contribution
of everyone who has participated in
the efforts to restore naturally
