The state coronavirus dashboard report at least 2 million Arizonans have been fully vaccinated against the disease. That represents 28% of the state’s total population.

An additional state-run vaccination site opened today in Scottsdale, with other sites operating in metro Phoenix, Glendale, Yuma, Tucson and Flagstaff. In Coconino County, health officials estimate more than 44% of residents have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. That’s the second highest county vaccination in the state, slightly behind Santa Cruz County. The Navajo Nation leads the nation in vaccinations. According to the  Tribe’s health department, some 91,000 residents – more than half the reservation’s population – have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
