TUCSON (KVOA)- Many viewers have emailed News 4 Tucson asking when the Pima County Health Department will open more slots to sign up for a COVID-19 vaccine.

The Pima County Health Department released this statement: "Spots open up shortly after vaccines arrive and get physically added to the local inventory because we hope to avoid setting appointments for vaccine that isn't there. We're now past 200,000 registrations between TMC's MyChart and Banner's RedCap systems, so between that and the number of people scheduled to receive their second dose, some registrations remain in the queue. Those people will receive notification of open slots as the supply grows."

PCHD announced last week about 30,000 doses are expected to arrive by Wednesday of this week at the latest.

As of Monday, AZDHS reported that Pima County has administered 114,165 vaccines out of the 169,375 ordered.
