Appointments No Longer Required At State-Run COVID-19 Vaccination Sites


State health officials say appointments are no longer required at state-run vaccination sites as Arizona currently has enough COVID-19 vaccine to meet demand in metro Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff and Yuma.

The Department of Health Services made the announcement today, a day after announcing 60,000 appointments remained available for this week at the seven sites statewide. The department said making an appointment is still recommended as it reduces on-site registration time since all the required information will already be in the system. Arizona today reported 682 additional confirmed COVID-19 cases and eight more deaths. The Navajo Nation today reports 5 newly confirmed cases and no additional deaths. The Hopi Tribe reports only 5 new cases in the last 2 weeks.
