Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez was on to witness weekend vaccinations.

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. - With over 95,000 individuals on largest Indian reservation in America fully vaccinated, as reported by the Navajo Area Indian Health Service (IHS), the Navajo Nation is nearing herd immunity.

"The Navajo Nation is moving closer to herd immunity, or as our health care professionals say 'community immunity.' We all have a part to play in pushing back on Covid-19 and receiving the vaccine is a critical part of the overall fight," Navajo Nation President Jonathan said on Wednesday.

According to Nez, vaccines are widely available to all people who meet the requirements. He urged Navajo citizens to inform and encourage their loved ones to receive the vaccine if they have not done so already.
