Story from the Field

Name of Health Department/Agency: Navajo Division of Health
State: AZ
Date Added: 01/25/2010
Themes: Communications - General H1N1,Vaccine Supply and Distribution
Issue Summary: Navajo reservation runs daily vaccine clinics and creates large format advertising
Description of Issue(s):

In the Northeast region of Arizona, on Navajo land, we have clinics and hospitals providing H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccinations daily.

We plan to continue the influenza prevention messages in a larger format (posters, billboards, transit buses) for the next six months.

Actions taken to address the issue(s): We are planning a full day for Navajo Division of Health employees in the week of January 10. We have scheduled the second vaccinations for Headstart children on the New Mexico side of the reservation begining Jan. 10. We are working on the schedule for Headstart H1N1 vaccinations on the Arizona and Utah side.

We have four transit buses presently running with Flu Fighter messaging. These buses run daily between Tuba City in Arizona, and Shiprock, Gallup and Crownpoint in New Mexico.

We are working on billboards at five sites on and around the Navajo Reservation. These billboards have flu prevention messaging.

Last week we ran a full page ad in the Navajo Times. We are working on making the full page ad into posters. We have incorporated the Stop the Spread logo that the Arizona Department of Health Services is using for influenza vaccination and prevention messaging onto all of our billboards.

Outcomes that resulted from actions taken: N/A
