'We just need to be safe': Monkeypox vaccine rolls out in Indian Country


August 24, 2022

The Navajo Nation is receiving its first doses of the Monkeypox vaccine as experts and providers in Indian Country respond to the latest public health threat.

During a town hall on Tuesday, President Jonathan Nez said his tribe reached out directly to the White House to secure the Monkeypox vaccine doses. The shipment is expected to arrive later in the week.

“I just got word that, this week — Thursday, Friday — we will have the monkeypox vaccination,” Nez said from the largest reservation in the United States.
