State health department says COVID-19 vaccine supply starting to meet demand

Arizona Department of Health Services

Even with so many Arizonans now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, appointments at state-run sites are taking longer to fill up.

Appointments for state-run sites are released every Friday for the following week. They usually fill up within a few hours.

But as of Monday morning, there were still appointments available for this week that were not from cancellations at two state-run sites, the University of Arizona and the Yuma Convention Center. By Tuesday afternoon, the site in Yuma still had 3,600 appointments open.

“What I think we’re seeing right now is supply starting to meet demand,” Arizona Department of Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ said at a press conference Monday.
