YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The COVID vaccine clinic at the Yuma Civic Center closes on June 26. Health officials remind the community to act quickly and receive your vaccine before its closed.
The Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) said the last day to receive the first dose is June 5, which allows the 21 days to pass before receiving the second dose on June 26.
“Someone said ‘the COVID vaccine is a ticket to freedom.’ It’s freedom from this disease that has plagued all of humanity, causing enormous death and suffering,” shared Dr. Bharat Magu, Chief Medical Officer at YRMC. “As a healthcare provider, it saddens me to see preventable illnesses and death every day. The most important priority for our healthcare providers, our patients, and our community at this time is to defeat this virus, and the only way to do it is through the COVID vaccine.”
Officials have even made it easier for the community to receive its first dose. The vaccine clinic now accepts walk-ins. But if you would like to make an appointment online, you may still do so here.
The clinic is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
YRMC said since the vaccination site has opened, it has administered nearly 59,000 vaccinations.
