GLENDALE (KVOA) - On day two of vaccinations at the state's first 24 hour COVID-19 vaccination site, ADHS said they delivered 200 doses an hour or 4,800 in the first 24 hours.
According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, nearly 4,000 people had also been vaccinated by 6 p.m. on the first day the site at State Farm Stadium was open on Monday January 11th.
“I’m pleased and grateful to see the enthusiastic response not just from our volunteers and staff but from those who are able to use this medical facility to get vaccinated,” said Dr. Cara Christ, Director of the Arizona Department of Health Services.
The state said the site is a partnership between ADHS and the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Arizona, and the Arizona Cardinals.
According to ADHS, the goal is to vaccinate 6,000 Arizonans a day when it is running at full capacity.
Maricopa County has entered Phase One B of the vaccination plan and patients include healthcare workers, first responders, teachers, law enforcement officers, Arizonans over age 75, and others at the top of the priority list.
ADHS said all appointments have been booked through Tuesday, Jan. 19, but times are available beyond that date.
