As state health officials acknowledge the vaccine rollout is going slower than they’d hoped, some are now coming forward calling out the state saying it was their scheduling systems that lead to the lower numbers.
Three of Maricopa County’s five vaccination sites have churned out shots for two weeks now. But two sites caught ABC15’s attention this weekend as volunteers seemingly manned empty locations.
“They were all set up and ready to go, they had (the) vaccine(s), they had staff, they had workers. They had cones set up in the parking lot and nobody was showing up,” said former state health director Will Humble.
As of New Year’s Eve, nearly 47,000 people in Maricopa County had been vaccinated.
But according to state officials, its not enough.
