“The Omicron BA.5. subvariant is leading to more infections across the country, in our region, and here on the Navajo Nation. We have to keep our guard up and keep pushing back on COVID-19 together by encouraging our loved ones to be safe and taking precautions, especially in public places. Our best defense against this virus are the vaccines and the guidelines from our public health experts. We are in this together,” said NavajoNation President Jonathan Nez.

Health care facilities on 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.

“Keep practicing safety measures and keep praying for our frontline warriors and those who are fighting COVID-19 at this moment. Our prayers will continue to provide us with the strength and determination to keep moving forward in this pandemic,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
