Arizona GOP Congress members request more COVID vaccines for state

By KTAR

Arizona’s four Republican members of Congress sent a letter Friday to the Federal Emergency Management Agency asking for more coronavirus vaccines after a request by Gov. Doug Ducey and Arizona’s top health official was denied.

The letter – signed by Debbie Lesko, Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs and David Schweikert – supports the request made by Ducey and Arizona Department of Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ for an emergency infusion of 300,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses and an increase of 300,000 doses weekly from the state’s federal allotment.

The lawmakers in the letter said Arizona is home to a disproportionately large at-risk population, and health care facilities are ready to meet the demand but cannot access the vaccine needed.

Nearly 823,000 vaccines have been administered in Arizona as of the Friday daily update from the Arizona Department of Health Services, officially passing the number of infections (775,622) recorded in the state as of Friday.
