Tens of thousands of appointments remain available for this week at state COVID-19 mass-vaccination sites in the Valley, Tucson, Yuma, and Flagstaff. Getting vaccinated is as simple as clicking a mouse, picking up the phone, or driving to a site.
Of the 74,000 first-dose appointments made available last Friday, nearly 60,000 were still available this morning to receive the Pfizer vaccine at state sites. Locations of these and other sites offering COVID-19 vaccination are available at azdhs.gov/FindVaccine.
“COVID-19 vaccines are safe, highly effective, free, and available ‒ often on the same day ‒ at state vaccination sites serving the most-populous areas of the state,” said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS). “We need more Arizonans to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated to protect themselves, their families, and the community.”
To date, 4,852,704 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Arizona to 2,867,481 individuals, of whom 2,162,197 have been fully vaccinated. State sites have administered 1,405,099 of those doses to 803,742 individuals, of whom 643,219 have been fully vaccinated.
Here are appointments that remained available this week at each state site for those 16 and older:
- University of Arizona (Tucson): 4,923
- Yuma Civic Center (Yuma): 2,166
- Northern Arizona University Fieldhouse (Flagstaff): 2,900

Appointments are the surest way to guarantee the shortest possible experience time, but walk-ins also are accepted at all state vaccination sites. Visit podvaccine.azdhs.gov or call 1-844-542-8201 to make appointments. Hours of operation for the call center are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m, seven days a week. Both resources offer assistance in English and Spanish.
Throughout the week, ADHS makes some additional appointments available due to cancellations and no-shows.
