GREEN VALLEY (KVOA)- In early February, 3,000 people received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at one of the two PODs in Green Valley.

Those two Green Valley PODs were Santa Cruz Valley Regional Hospital and the Community Performing Arts Center.

Many viewers have emailed News 4 Tucson saying that it is almost time to get their second dose and they haven't received any notification to sign up for their second appointment.

Those 3,000 second doses will be delivered March 8-11th, according to Debbie Kenyon with the Green Valley Council.

Appointments will be made in two ways, according to Green Valley Fire District's Chief Chuck Wunder.

“For those who registered in the state system for their first dose and have
an email address on file, you will receive an email notification prompting you to log in to the system to confirm your appointment," he said. "For those who were registered at a vaccination site, or for those who do not have an email address on file, you will be contacted by a representative from the GVC to receive the date and time of your scheduled second-round appointment."

Chief Wunder said that he anticipates it will take until Wednesday, March 3rd to complete all notifications.

If you have not been emailed or contacted by phone by Wednesday, March 3rd in regards to your second vaccine appointment, call the Green Valley Council at 520-848-4903. This phone number will not be monitored until Wednesday, March 3rd at 8 a.m.

All the second dose appointments will only be done at the Santa Cruz Valley Regional Hospital for the same 3,000 people that received their first dose at the Green Valley PODs.

The Green Valley Council attributed the delay in notifying residents to not knowing when the second round of doses would be available because of limited availability of the vaccine.
