Why did the County move to vaccinating priority populations within Phase 1b when my family member who lives in a congregate setting and therefore is part of 1a hasn’t received their vaccine yet?

Through the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-term Care Program, CDC has engaged retail pharmacy partners (CVS and Walgreens) to secure vaccine and provide on-site vaccination of residents and staff at no cost to the facility. Skilled Nursing Facilities residents and staff will receive the vaccine first, followed by Assisted Living and other adult congregate settings. This program’s process and allocation is separate and outside of Coconino County’s jurisdiction and is operating on a different timeline than the County at-large. We are working hard with our medical and community partners to offer additional vaccine appointment availability, including specific vaccination events for those 75 years of age or older. Our COVID-19 Information Line is expanding hours to aid those without internet access or those who need help navigating our site, book appointments as they become available. You can reach our COVID-19 Information Line at 928-679-7300. For those that 75 years of age or older, our Call Center staff is maintaining a list of persons to connect with when we have availability to help book an appointment.
