COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution to Phase 1B

COVID-19 Vaccines

Maricopa County Department of Public Health received its first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine on December 22nd.  Our team has worked diligently in distributing the vaccine to those in Phase 1A, frontline healthcare workers and EMS.  

On Monday, January 11th, Maricopa County Public Health will open up vaccination scheduling at Point of Dispensing sites for prioritized groups in Phase 1B.  Appointments initially will be limited so please be patient.  Information on where vaccine will be distributed and how to access scheduling systems will be posted at Maricopa.gov/COVID19Vaccine1B beginning on Monday, January 11th.
