“To everyone who has been vaccinated, I say thank you. To those who haven’t yet gotten your shot, I urge you to roll up your sleeve and help Arizona defeat COVID-19,” Gov. Doug Ducey said in a news release. “This achievement is a credit to the healthcare workers, staff, and volunteers who have worked tirelessly since December.”
Nearly 3.2 million doses have been administered since the vaccination program launched in December. As of March 27, 1.2 million Arizonans have been fully vaccinated, according to the ADHS.
“State-run sites and many others are now vaccinating everyone 16 and older or 18 and older depending on the vaccine being used, and we’re looking forward to increasing supply from our federal partners,” ADHS Director Dr. Cara Christ said in a news release. “These safe and effective vaccines are the light at the end of the tunnel after more than a year of struggle against COVID-19.”
Doses administered as of March 27 at each state site are:
- State Farm Stadium, Glendale: 575,112
- Arizona State University Phoenix Municipal Stadium: 130,345
- University of Arizona: 72,777 (plus 23,883 before becoming a state site)
- Chandler-Gilbert Community College: 64,231
