Getting more people vaccinated will help Arizona’s economy, Dr. Carmona says

By Stephanie Innes | Arizona Republic

Former U.S. Surgeon General and current Arizona COVID-19 adviser Dr. Richard Carmona says he’s working with Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey to change the narrative around the virus.

Not enough residents of the state have been vaccinated. For that reason, the state’s economic health is in peril, he wrote in a blog post Wednesday.

Arizona, which has the nation’s seventh-highest overall COVID-19 death rate, wrote that COVID-19 is threatening Arizona’s economic health.

“Businesses large and small, an untold number of jobs, and the economic expansion that has always propelled Arizona and America forward are at risk,” Carmona wrote.

“Not enough of us have been vaccinated. A little more than half of our state and nation have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. We’ve made tremendous progress since the vaccine first became available. We’ve got to do more.”
