Arizona has administered more than 6 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine since December, according to a news release from the Arizona Department of Health Services, with nearly with nearly 3.4 million people having received at least one dose and 2.9 million now fully vaccinated as of June 7.

“Arizona has reached another major milestone with our six millionth dose of COVID-19 vaccine administered,” said Gov. Doug Ducey in a news release. “This is the result of hard work by so many—nurses, doctors, pharmacists, staff, volunteers and more. Arizona is proud of the success so far and we’re committed to keeping up the momentum.”

As of June 7, 6,016,915 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to 3,385,174 individuals, including 2,884,332 who are now fully vaccinated.

“It’s never been easier to protect yourself and your community by rolling up your sleeve,” ADHS Director Dr. Cara Christ said in a news release. “Vaccination is safe, highly effective, free, and available by walking in at hundreds of locations across the state.”

Last week, ADHS announced plans to phase out state-run mass-vaccination sites as state health officials turn their focus to increasing the number of neighborhood options, including pharmacies, doctors’ offices, and pop-up clinics.


Information about all vaccination sites across Arizona, including pharmacies, federally qualified health centers, and other locations, can be found at azhealth.gov/findvaccine,
