#NMtrustedvoices - Julianna Reece is the Chief Medical Officer of the #ABQ Area Indian Health Service. She is a Physician, who was born & raised on the #NavajoNation.

“As a fellow New Mexican & Native American, I’ve experienced a number of mixed feelings about the p&emic & the COVID-19 vaccination.

I chose to get the COVID-19 vaccination after studying the safety, the science, & weighing the risk of not only getting this deadly disease myself, but passing it on to vulnerable elders & community members who are at higher risk.

I chose to be a part of our story of survival & help continue our traditions & culture by protecting myself & others. Let's all come together to protect our communities. Please get registered for the COVID-19 vaccination.”

#VocesdeNuevoMexico - Julianna Reece es la directora médica del Servicio de Salud Indígena del Área de #ABQ. Ella es una médica, que nació y se crió en la #NacionNavajo.

“Como compatriota de Nuevo México y Nativo Americano, he tenido una serie de sentimientos encontrados sobre la pandemis y la vacuna contra el COVID-19. Elegí recibir la vacuna después de estudiar la seguridad, la ciencia y sopesar el riesgo no solo de contraer esta enfermedad mortal, sino de transmitirla a los ancianos vulnerables y a los miembros de la comunidad que corren mayor riesgo. Elegí ser parte de nuestra historia de supervivencia y ayudar a continuar nuestras tradiciones y cultura protegiéndome a mí misma y a los demás. Unámonos todos para proteger nuestras comunidades. Inscríbase para la vacuna contra el COVID-19 ”.

A message to patients who have received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine

Out of an abundance of caution, the Indian Health Service has paused the use of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine as the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reviews data involving six reported U.S. cases of an extremely rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine.

Seek medical care urgently if you develop any of the following symptoms:

• severe headache,
• backache,
• new neurologic symptoms,
• severe abdominal pain,
• shortness of breath,
• leg swelling,
• tiny red spots on the skin (petechiae), or
• new or easy bruising

To date, there have been no cases reported through IHS of the rare and severe type of blood clot seen in some individuals who have received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine.

If you had an appointment scheduled to receive the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine talk to your health care provider about whether the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine is available and appropriate for you.

People fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (two weeks after receiving the last recommended dose of vaccine) can travel within the United States and do not need COVID-19 testing or post-travel self-quarantine as long as they continue to take precautions while traveling: wear a mask, avoid crowds, and wash hands frequently. https://bit.ly/3aauF7o

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items between use.

If celebrating indoors, make sure to open windows.
