An Arizona health expert said on Wednesday that the state needs to overhaul the entire appointment system for coronavirus vaccines.

Will Humble, executive director for the Arizona Public Health Association and former director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, says the current system is favoring those who have good computers, broadband WiFi and the job flexibility to be able to log on at the proper time.
