Arizona’s top public health official doesn’t expect this week’s weather delays to have a significant impact on the state’s vaccination progress.

Dr. Cara Christ, director for the Arizona Department of Health Services, said Friday that the state’s timeline for moving to next vaccine phases shouldn’t be heavily affected by storms that have rocked much of the U.S.

“The weather may play a role and keeping in mind some counties may not be able to move into the next phase of vaccinations beginning mid-March,” Christ said during a press conference. “Hopefully we’ll by able to go back and vaccinate all of the people that we had to reschedule and can stay on track.”

“But right now we are administering 250,000 to 300,000 doses per week and so that is a pretty good progression and hopefully we can still stay on track for that.”
