PHOENIX, AZ (STL.News) State-run sites have administered their 1 millionth dose of COVID-19 vaccine, continuing Arizona’s national leadership in protecting its residents.

Among the 1,053,035 doses administered at Arizona’s five state-run sites, nearly 700,000 have been administered at State Farm Stadium, which the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) opened Jan. 11 in Glendale.

“Arizona is working around the clock to make the COVID-19 vaccine available to all,” said Governor Doug Ducey.  “Today we are reaching another major milestone — administering the 1 millionth dose at state-run vaccination sites.  We are thankful to the thousands of staff and volunteers who have been working tirelessly to get Arizonans vaccinated.”

As of this morning, 3,708,660 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Arizona to 2,350,701 individuals, including 1,471,750 who have been fully vaccinated.

“The staff and volunteers at state vaccination sites in the Phoenix area, Tucson, and Yuma continue to do a tremendous job of getting these safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines into the community,” said ADHS Director Dr. Cara Christ.  “As more vaccine becomes available, we need even more Arizonans to roll up their sleeves at state sites and other venues.”
