Arizona COVID-19 updates: 5 counties cancel vaccine appointments as storms delay shipments

By The Arizona Republic

As Arizona continued trends seen for most of February, health officials began administering the COVID-19 vaccine to an expanded group, those age 65 and older.

Appointments for that group to get vaccinated began opening up earlier this week, county officials say.

To schedule a vaccine in Maricopa County, go to maricopa.gov/5659/COVID-19-Vaccine-Locations. The county also has a detailed website with questions and answers about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Arizona passed 15,000 known COVID-19 deaths and 800,000 identified cases Wednesday as the state again reported relatively lower case counts and declining hospitalizations for the disease.

Arizona’s seven-day, new-case average ranked 20th on Wednesday among all states, after ranking first and second for much of January, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID Data Tracker.

A bill would give Arizona businesses a choice on enforcing mask mandates.

Vaccine deliveries have not yet arrived this week in Pinal County due to storm conditions at the airport and ground transportation hubs throughout the nation, according to Pinal County Public Health.
