On the day Arizona’s newest state-run COVID-19 vaccination site debuted, officials announced plans Monday to open another one later this month.
An indoor site will open at WestWorld of Scottsdale on April 22, the Arizona Department of Health Services said in a press release.
The Scottsdale location will begin by handling 3,000-4,000 appointments daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“That will service the North Valley a well as our tribal communities around there,” Christ said Monday during the launch of a new site in Mesa.
“That [WestWorld] will be a walk-up, or walk-in, indoor facility.”
The city of Scottsdale is providing the multi-use facility for use as a vaccine site through June 30, according to the release. Global health service company Cigna will run the operation. (Arizona considering need for 2 more indoor Valley mass-vaccination sites.)
