GLENDALE, AZ — State Farm Stadium has reached a huge milestone: 500,000 coronavirus vaccines administered.

The location provided the half-millionth shot Monday morning after just over two months of service.

Governor Doug Ducey says a 77-year-old woman received the 500,000th dose.

The Arizona Department of Health Services says 9,000 shots are administered every 24 hours at the location.

"The facility has accounted for approximately 20 percent of the doses administered in Arizona to date and according to data collected by Bloomberg, the venue has issued more vaccines than 50 individual countries," ADHS said in a press release.

As of March 15, ADHS says more than 2,276,870 total vaccines have been given in Arizona.
