Registration for vaccine appointments for those 65 years and older will open tomorrow at 9 a.m.
These appointments are being held at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale and the Phoenix Municipal Stadium.
The number of appointments available at the site will depend on the number of vaccine doses available at the time. AZDHS says this gives another 750,000 Arizonans the opportunity to be vaccinated in prioritized Phase 1B.
AZDHS says more than 281,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered so far to 243,593 Arizonans, including 32,269 who have received both doses.
“We anticipate very high demand for these appointments. When they are filled, we will continue working tirelessly to secure more vaccine doses and open up more appointments,” said Dr Cara Christ, the director of AZDHS. “The number of vaccine doses the federal government has provided to Arizona is limited. Our main barrier right now to providing even more capacity is the availability of vaccine nationally. As our State Farm Stadium site has shown, with nearly 35,000 people vaccinated already, we are ready to scale up and vaccinate even more people.”
Information about all vaccination sites across Arizona can be found at azhealth.gov/findvaccine.
