“It’s been 19 months since we had our first confirmed case of COVID-19 on the Navajo Nation. We’ve learned a lot about the virus and how to prevent it from spreading from person to person. Our health care experts have provided guidance every step of the way. It ultimately comes down to our actions and decisions that we make each day. Please continue to be very cautious and continue to pray for our frontline warriors, those who are fighting COVID-19 and recovering, and for all of our communities,” said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.

Health care facilities across the Navajo Nation continue to administer COVID-19 vaccines. If you would like to receive one of the COVID-19 vaccines, please contact your health care provider and schedule an appointment.

“The pandemic has also taken its toll on the mental health of our people and that includes first responders and our health care workers in the hospitals. Please continue to pray for our people and those who are fighting hard to recover from COVID-19. We are in this together,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
