“The Delta variant continues to spread across the country, mainly among people who are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19. We strongly encourage everyone to get fully vaccinated to help protect yourselves and your loved ones. Please continue to wear a mask in public and continue to pray for our people,” 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 appreciate all of our health care workers and frontline workers who continue to work through the weekend to save lives. We can help them by taking precautions and by getting vaccinated. Community immunity is our goal. Be safe and keep praying for our Nation,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
