“Booster shots of the COVID-19 vaccines are available at health care facilities for those who were previously fully vaccinated. We encourage all eligible individuals to get a booster shot before the upcoming holidays. The vaccines for 5-to-11-year-old children will also soon be available once doses are distributed and ready to administer. The individual choices we make each day ultimately determine the number of new infections. We don’t want to lose any more of our Navajo people to this virus. We have so many people who are enduring the loss of loved ones because of COVID-19. Please take precautions, wear a mask, and get fully vaccinated to help reduce the spread of COVID-19,” 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.

“Our frontline workers and health care providers are doing everything they can to help our people and to save lives. We have to do more to help them by taking safety measures and encouraging our loved ones to be safe, especially if they have to travel. We are this together. We have to continue to support one another and to pray for our people,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
