While some Seminole members alleged that they were not given COVID-19 vaccine shots, Seminole leaders in Oklahoma termed those allegations as false.
Freedmen descendants have previously alleged that they have been denied the right to vote and run in tribal elections and access to federally funded programs for housing and health care and financial assistance for college or COVID-19 financial support.
However, Oklahoma's Seminole Nation has denied the claim by stating that allegation made is entirely false. It further stated that the United States Indian Health Service is the entity in charge of administering COVID-19 vaccinations to the Seminole Nation and is administered as per federal law. Buzzfeed quoted IHS as saying that it is not involved in determining tribal enrollment of individuals.
Though there are questions for years concerning the denial of rights of Black Creek descendants, we don't have enough evidence to verify the claim. Hence we mark it as unverifiable.
