Rangers, who work in remote and isolated regions of Canada, helped out by transporting people to a health care centre to receive their second dose of the vaccine.
The photos show members of the Canadian Armed Forces taking people on the back of snowmobiles so they could get fully vaccinated.
Sajjan said that this happened at the beginning of February.
Rangers travelled more than 400 kilometres and helped 81 people in the community over two days.
Nain is the northernmost and largest community in Nunatsiavut, located on the eastern coast of Labrador.
