Coconino County a Leader in Vaccine Administration, Thanks FEMA, National Guard, and Partners

Coconino County continues to be a leader among all Arizona counties in vaccine administration, with nearly 39% of the population receiving at least one vaccine dose to date.

To maintain this status as a leader and to keep the residents of Coconino County safe, all eligible individuals are encouraged to receive the vaccine as soon as possible. Coconino County residents ages 18 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and appointments remain available throughout the county, including at Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff. The County has not moved to include individuals ages 16 and 17 years old because it does not have an allotment of the Pfizer vaccine, the only vaccine with authorization for use in this population. Coconino County has been able to maintain such a steady and consistent vaccination rate with the support of federal, state, and community partners.

“It is because of the support of our vaccine site partners and this community that has allowed Coconino County to be a leader among counties in the percent of the population vaccinated. Agencies such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Guard have been instrumental in our success at our own vaccine site. These dedicated team members integrated seamlessly when they arrived from all over the country back in February to assume positions as vaccinators, traffic directors, call center staff, and anything else we needed. Our partners throughout this response are owed a debt of gratitude from us here at Coconino County and our residents,” said Director of Health and Human Services, Kim Musselman.

To make a vaccine appointment go to coconino.az.gov/covid19vaccine or call our COVID-19 Information Line at (928) 679-7300.
