Coronavirus shots still available at pharmacies, doctor's offices and pop-up clinics
PHOENIX, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Arizona's state-run COVID-19 vaccination sites, including the one at the Yuma Civic Center, will shut down later this month.
The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) says all its sites will be closed by June 28. Health officials say the sites are not longer needed, because shots are now readily available. People can now get vaccines at most pharmacies, as well as at doctor's offices, and pop up clinics.
ADHS has distributed more than 1.6 million shots at its clinics. The first one opened at State Farm Stadium in January. It drew praise from President Joe Biden and went on to become a model for sites across the country.
The Yuma Civic Center site will give its last shot on June 26.
