“The Delta variant is the dominant strain in every part of the country and it continues to spread in our communities as well. Reports indicate that the Delta variant is 60-percent more transmissible and can lead to more severe symptoms and death. We want all of our people to be safe and healthy, so please get fully vaccinated and keep wearing masks in public. We have to keep pushing back together. We are in this together,” 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. 

“Keep your guard up and adhere to the guidance that our public health experts have provided since the pandemic began. Our health care workers and first responders continue to work through the weekend to help our people, so please help them by taking precautions. Be safe and keep praying,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
