What Phase of vaccination is Coconino County in?

On January 8, 2020, Coconino County opened vaccination appointments at select sites to priority populations in Phase 1b. Priority populations in Phase 1b are:

  • Law enforcement and protective services (corrections, other emergency response staff).
  • Individuals aged 65 and older.

Individuals within Phase 1a including healthcare personnel and long-term care facility residents and staff continue to be eligible to receive vaccinations.

 Healthcare Personnel is defined as those working in the following healthcare settings:

  • Hospitals
  • Long Term Care Facilities
  • Homes for adults with developmental disabilities

More information is available at https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6949e1.htm.

The exact timeline of vaccine distribution among Phase 1 priority groups and Phase 2 and 3 remaining populations will depend on factors such as how many vaccine types have been approved, how many doses have been manufactured and allocated to Coconino County, how many individuals decide to get vaccinated, and other logistical factors. As more vaccine is available to more groups of people, more locations will open to provide vaccine.
