COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan


As doses of the COVID-19 vaccine continue to arrive in Arizona, the Arizona Department of Health Services is prioritizing the distribution in three phases.

They are currently in Phase 1A which includes healthcare personnel, healthcare support occupations, long-term care facility residents (and staff at these facilities). Phase 1A also includes direct care workers offering services to members in their own homes, such as attendant care and personal care services. Counties and tribal partners may elect to prioritize populations within each phase of the vaccine roll out, based on considerations specific to their jurisdiction.

Distribution of the vaccine will be conducted at the county level, so please see your county's public health website for distribution information. Some counties, like Maricopa County, have a Phase 1A pre-screening tool in order to determine whether an individual meets the criteria for the 1A population. Points of Dispensing (POD) sites will be established in each county.
