Arizona began a massive effort to vaccinate residents against COVID-19 on Jan. 11, with the opening of its first state-run shot site at State Farm Stadium in Glendale. The 24/7 operation, which has since closed, administered more than 632,000 doses, becoming one of the largest mass-vaccination locations in the nation.

The site was one of many efforts – big and small – to get shots into arms. From operations at university campuses to events at small clinics on the Navajo reservation, doctors, nurses, members of the National Guard and everyday volunteers came together to help get Arizona closer to herd immunity and the normal life left behind over a year ago.

Cronkite News photographer Travis Robertson crisscrossed Arizona to document the undertaking that has succeeded in fully vaccinating 39% of those in the state.
