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.
“You have to have a flexible job because as soon as those appointments become live, you’re able to get on at exactly the right time because it’s like concert tickets — they’re gone,” Humble told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Gaydos and Chad on Wednesday.
The last time Arizona made COVID-19 vaccine appointments available was on Feb. 3, and all 21,000 of those slots were taken in 39 minutes.
