Getting vaccinated protects us all from severe infection and reduces the likelihood of being hospitalized due to viral infection.
Let’s protect ourselves, our elders, and our children for whom the vaccine is not available yet.
Let’s protect our communities.
Campaign team volunteers are currently providing virtual outreach of public health education throughout various regions of the Navajo Nation to encourage more community members to get vaccinated.
Educating the community with reliable information is essential to increase vaccinations on Navajo. The campaign’s community oriented strategy reinforces an essential message. As Indigenous peoples, we hold a shared responsibility to protect our elders who safeguard our traditional wisdom and our younger generations who will carry our community forward.
Before the Navajo Nation moved to orange status, Yee Ha'ólníi Doo set up vaccination tabling sites in shared community spaces like flea markets and tribal clinics. With incentive giveaways for vaccinated community members, we are encouraging vaccination on Navajo.
Public health information regarding the benefits of vaccinating is now shared via telephone to ensure the safety of our community members.
