Appointments will be available Feb. 5-18 from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Those who receive their first vaccinations at State Farm Stadium or Phoenix Municipal Stadium will have a guaranteed appointment for second doses at the same vaccination site.
Last week, Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order requiring all vaccine providers that have received more than 1,000 doses and had over 40% of those doses remaining unused to submit a plan to ADHS. Plans submitted by counties and health care providers identified available doses of the Pfizer vaccine and allowed ADHS to open up additional appointments at Phoenix Municipal Stadium, according to the news release.
“Arizona acted quickly to ensure these vaccine doses will go to Arizonans with urgency, rather than sitting in a freezer,” Ducey said in a statement. “With State Farm Stadium and our new Phoenix Municipal Stadium, Arizona has dramatically increased the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered each day. These vaccination sites have become a national model for other states and we will continue to look for ways to ensure Arizona’s vaccine doses are being used.”
So far, more than 702,664 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to 579,225 Arizonans, including 109,617 who have received both doses. As of Feb. 2, 123,242 Arizonans have been vaccinated at the state-run vaccination sites since the opening of State Farm Stadium on Jan. 11 and Phoenix Municipal Stadium on Feb. 1. In less than three weeks, State Farm Stadium has administered over 25% of the total vaccinations given in Maricopa County, which includes sites that have had vaccine supplies since Dec. 14. Over 95% of those who have been vaccinated at the site are Maricopa County residents.
