State-Run COVID-19 Vaccination Sites Reach 1 Million Doses Administered

AP, file

Arizona health officials say state-run COVID-19 vaccination sites have now administered more than a million doses.

According to the Arizona Department of Health services, the site at State Farm Stadium in Glendale accounts for about 700,000 of the shots given since it opened near the beginning of the year. Throughout Arizona about 3.7 million people have received at least one dose of a vaccine, accounting for about 33% of the state’s population.

Coconino County has the highest vaccination rate among Arizona counties at more than 40%. Apache County has the lowest with about 11% of the population having received at least one shot.

Arizona health officials Monday reported more than 608 new known COVID-19 infections and no recent deaths. Hospitalizations have declined in recent weeks but intensive care unit occupancy by COVID patients has remained somewhat flat in the last week.

Nearly 845,000 Arizonans have tested positive for COVID since the beginning of the pandemic and almost 17,000 have died.
