PHOENIX - First Lady Jill Biden and Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff visited the Isaac Middle School in Phoenix, Ariz. on Wednesday to an effort to increase Covid-19 vaccinations throughout Arizona, including tribal communities.

The fact that only 40 percent of Arizona has been vaccinated led to the effort to increase vaccinations in the state.

Among the guests were several Arizona tribal leaders, including Navajo Nation Jonathan Nez, Gila River Indian Community Gov. Stephen Roe Lewis, San Carlos Apache Tribal Chairman Terry Rambler, Tohono O'odham Nation Chairman Ned Norris, Jr., and Ak-Chin Indian Community Chairman Robert Miguel.
