PHOENIX — Maricopa County plans to close two of its six regional COVID-19 vaccination sites in coming weeks as public health officials put increased emphasis on smaller sites and events to give more shots.

The county’s northeast site operated by Honor Health in north Phoenix will last operate on Feb. 28 and the southeast site run by Dignity Health in Chandler will close in early March.

Officials say current appointments at each site will be honored.

Arizona on Saturday reported 2,047 additional confirmed COVID-19 cases and 59 deaths, increasing the state's pandemic totals to 806,163 cases and 15,480 deaths.
