“Children five to 11 years of age are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccines and they are readily available at health care facilities on the Navajo Nation. We are hopeful that more families are receiving the vaccines together and we also encourage everyone who was previously fully vaccinated to get a booster shot prior to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. We know that pandemic fatigue is affecting many people, but we have to pray for strength and continue to take precautions and push back on this virus. We do not want to lose any more of our Navajo people,” 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.

“We have so many men and women putting their health on the line every day in order to help those who are recovering from COVID-19 and to help save lives. Please, let’s help them by taking proper precautions to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Our health care workers are working around the clock to help people, but we need to do our part as well. Please continue to pray and be safe,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
