Here are some tips for those looking to schedule a vaccine appointment:

  • Create an ADHS account and complete your profile with your information ahead of time before scheduling your appointment
    • The ADHS website will ask for contact information and insurance information when filling out your profile information
  • Vaccination sites administering the Pfizer vaccine, including those run by the state, will be able to vaccinate Arizonans age 16 and older
  • For those without internet access or access to a computer, ADHS says people should call 1-844-542-8201 for assistance

Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, which are provided to counties, are approved for those 18 and older and are currently not being provided at state-run vaccination sites.
Officials say at both Maricopa County and state-run sites, 16- and 17-year-olds will need parental consent to receive the vaccine.

ADHS said it is also now opening appointments at 11 a.m. each Friday for State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona State University’s Phoenix Municipal Stadium in Tempe, Chandler-Gilbert Community College, the University of Arizona in Tucson, and, as of this Friday, Yuma Civic Center in Yuma County.

As of Friday, March 26, over three million doses have been administered in Arizona, with more than one million Arizonans having been fully vaccinated.
