New February appointments were added by ADHS for COVID-19 vaccines at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. Nearly 21,000 appointment slots were added – and booked – in less than an hour. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to get an appointment. You can still take steps to try to get into an appointment soon, or make a plan to get an appointment in the future as more appointments and vaccination sites are added. AZ decides to add vaccine appointments in Phoenix Municipal Stadium due to COVID-19 numbers. Here’s what you need to know to book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
Appointments are being added as more vaccines become available. Appointments are also becoming available as people who booked an appointment cancel or reschedule. These are the slots you want to look for.
How to Book a COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment
Currently, Arizona is vaccinating people in the 1A and 1B groups. These include EMS and healthcare workers, adults age 75 and older (age 65 and older in some counties and at some vaccination sites), K-12 school staff and childcare workers, and law enforcement or protective services.
Appointments are booked online. There is a tech support hotline for people who have trouble with the scheduling software. In order to book an appointment, find the vaccination site you want to go to and search for appointments at that site. You may be able to browse more than one vaccination site to find an appointment. Some sites operate 24/7, like State Farm Stadium in Glendale.
Where Arizona Vaccinations Stand
With the most recent data available from ADHS, more than 700,000 doses of the vaccine have been administered to more than 579,000 people in the state, with 109,000 having received both doses.
