“Our best defense against COVID-19 and the Delta variant is to get vaccinated and wear a mask in public. The mask mandate remains in place on the Navajo Nation and it applies to all visitors as well. We are in this together and we need more of our people to get fully vaccinated to reach our goal of community immunity and to save more lives. Our health care facilities are available to administer the vaccines, so please make arrangements to do so if you haven’t already. Keep pushing back this virus and please continue to take precautions,” 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. 

“Our health care experts have done a great job providing guidance and giving us the tools to keep ourselves safe and healthy. Ultimately, it is our personal responsibility to take precautions each and every day to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and the variants. Please be safe and keep praying for our frontline workers and all of our Navajo people,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
