Navajo Area Indian Health Services Distributes First Allocation Of Pfizer Vaccines
The Indian Health Service has distributed its first allocation of Pfizer vaccines for COVID-19 to health care centers in the Navajo Nation area.
On Tuesday, the Navajo area IHS delivered 3,900 Pfizer vaccines. The COVID-19 shots were distributed to Navajo Nation health care clinics.
Native Medicine Coordinator Roland Begay was the first health care worker at the facility to receive the vaccine, which requires a second shot to be fully immunized against the virus.
Navajo area IHS officials expect all health care workers to be vaccinated with their first dose by Sunday.
