PHOENIX — Starting Monday, ASU's Phoenix Municipal Stadium will open as the second state-run vaccination site for the Valley.

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) said the site will have the same capacity as the State Farm Stadium site but will have its capacity limited to about 500 doses a day due to the current limited vaccine supply.

The Phoenix Municipal Stadium is located near the Phoenix Zoo at the corner of Mill Avenue and Priest Drive/Galvin Parkway.

Earlier this month, the state had announced they would be opening a second state-run COVID-19 vaccination site due to high demand at State Farm Stadium.

Currently, the State Farm Stadium vaccination operation is the only 24/7 site.

Health officials said additional sites are also expected to be planned to provide 24/7 capacity. No details on when these additional sites will be announced were provided.

RELATED: State health officials report 5,025 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday January 31, 2021 and 22 additional deaths.

All appointments for both the state-run sites are booked through February as appointments have been reserved for those vaccinated at a state-run site to receive second doses, according to AZDHS.

On Saturday, AZDHS announced the State Farm Stadium has administered over 102,000 doses since opening the site on January 11.

Almost 630,000 doses of the vaccine have been administered throughout Arizona as of Saturday.
