“As concerns grow over the spread of the Omicron variant in certain countries around the world, our public health officials continue to urge all of our people to get fully vaccinated, get your booster shot, and take precautions. Due to increases in COVID-19 cases, some health care facilities are experiencing challenges when it comes to providing the nurses that are needed for ICU and specialized care and some patients are being flown to other locations off the Navajo Nation. We cannot afford to have another surge in new cases. Please be very careful and do everything you can to protect yourself and 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.

“Our health care system is being challenged right now, but our frontline workers continue to fight for us despite those challenges. Please help them by taking precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Be safe and continue to pray for our people and our health care workers,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
