“Keep pushing back on COVID-19 and the variants. Across the country there is growing concern over the spread of the Delta variant, so we have to be mindful and continue to take precautions such as wearing a mask in public. The mask mandate remains in place for the entire Navajo Nation. Our health care warriors are continuing to vaccinate as many of our people as possible. If you haven’t received the vaccine, we encourage you to do so to help keep yourselves and your loved ones safe. We are in this fight against COVID-19 together and we are overcoming it day by day,” said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.

Health care facilities across the Navajo Nation continue to administer COVID-19 vaccines during drive-thru events or by appointment. If you would like to receive the vaccine, please contact your health care provider for more information for your Service Unit. 

“Be safe and keep taking precautions to remain safe and healthy. We appreciate all of the hard work that our frontline workers are doing each and every day. We have to stay strong and keep supporting one another. Please be safe and keep praying for our communities and our people,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
