“Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Navajo people! We pray for continued blessings and good health for our people, frontline warriors, and our communities.

Have a safe and enjoyable time with your loved ones,” 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.
