“The Delta variant is the most dominant strain of COVID-19 across the country. We have several Delta variant cases confirmed on the Navajo Nation as well, so we all need to continue to be very careful and to wear a mask in public. We’ve done a great job in vaccinating our people, but we need to do more to get even more people fully vaccinated. We are in this together, so please take precautions to keep yourselves and others safe from COVID-19,” 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 on track to reach community immunity, but we still have people who haven’t been vaccinated yet. Our health care workers and first responders continue to make sacrifices and to work around the clock to save lives. So, please help them by continuing to take safety measures to protect against COVID-19 and the variants. Keep praying and be safe,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
