“Health care facilities on the Navajo Nation are now offering the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for children who are between the ages of six months old and 5-years-old. The vaccines are the best defense against COVID-19 if you get the virus. The vaccines are proven to be highly-effective in pushing back on symptoms and lowering the chances of being hospitalized if you get the virus. We are in this together so please mask up and continue to protect yourselves and others, especially in public places,” said Navajo Nation 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.

“Enjoy the weekend with your loved ones and please pray for our frontline workers who work through the weekend to help our people and to save lives. Please do your part to help our doctors and nurses by taking precautions to keep yourselves safe and healthy during this pandemic,” said Vice President Myron Lizer.
