“Happy Father’s Day to all of the fathers and grandfathers across the Navajo Nation. We wish you all a safe and joyful time with your family and loved ones. With our Nation’s high rate of vaccinations, we are optimistic that we won’t see a spike in new infections due to the holiday, but we must remain diligent and keep pushing back on this virus. Community immunity is our goal, so please get vaccinated if you haven’t already,” 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. 

“We are in this fight against COVID-19 together, so keep taking precautions and stay safe where ever you go. We have to get more of our people vaccinated to reach community immunity and we have to keep supporting one another. Be safe and keep praying for our communities and our frontline workers,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
