Pima County Closes Mass Vaccination Sites As Vaccinate Rate Nears 70%
Pima County is phasing out mass Covid-19 vaccination sites as the county’s vaccination rate nears 70%.
County officials said Friday that nearly 70% of residents 18 and older have received one dose of a vaccine, and that the vaccination rate for those 65 and older is 93%.
Three out of four state-run sites in the region, including one at the University of Arizona, were closed at the end of June.
Two vaccination sites operated by the county and the Federal Emergency Management Agency were closed as well.
State Health Director Cara Christ said at the beginning of June that Arizona is in a good place in terms of vaccination supply, and can move towards places closer to home, including pharmacies and doctors’ offices, to vaccinate the remainder of Arizonans.
