“It is important for all our community members to take the necessary steps to get their primary vaccine and follow-up with a booster,” NB3 Foundation Director of Advancement, Cyanne Lujan said. “There has been a lot of misinformation spread, particularly through social media. We want everyone, especially our Native youth and families to know that the vaccine is safe. We encourage them to come out and get vaccinated as an act of care and love for our communities and families.”

It is recommended that there is at least 21 days (about 3 weeks) between the first and second dose and six (6) months between the second dose and the newly available booster (third dose). Those who received the Johnson & Johnson are eligible for a booster if it has been at least two months since they received their primary J&J.
