We are in this together and that means everyone has to do their part to reduce the spread of the virus,” 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.

“For those who celebrate Halloween, we want you to be safe and reduce the chances of spreading COVID-19 by taking proper precautions.

Be safe and continue to pray for all of our people including the frontline workers and their families,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
