Pinal County Distribution of the COVID-19 Vaccine

vaccine

Pinal County has been receiving a large number of calls regarding distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, likely due to Maricopa County releasing its distribution plan yesterday.

The FDA, scheduled to meet this week, has not yet approved a COVID-19 vaccine, but once they do, supplies will be limited at first. While Pinal County Public Health is fully prepared to receive and distribute the vaccine, allocation to counties will be based on population.

Pinal County Public Health Director Dr. Tascha Spears commented, "I'm really proud of our public health team and community partners who have been working hard behind the scenes to prepare for distribution of the vaccine, and we are ready to deliver the first vaccine as soon as it arrives in Pinal County. We do not have a specific date of delivery nor a specific allocation amount at this time. However, based on current information, we anticipate receipt of the vaccine towards the end of December. We expect our first delivery will be a week or two behind delivery to Maricopa and Pima counties."

Once the County receives the vaccine, distribution will be prioritized according to CDC and State recommendations, which will see healthcare workers receiving the vaccine first. The Pinal team anticipates moving quickly to vaccinate the healthcare group and is then prepared, along with community partners, to vaccinate others identified by the CDC for early vaccination.

* Since the type of vaccine, timing of shipments, and allocations to Pinal county are still unknown, this is a fluid situation that can change daily. Updates will be posted on the Pinal County Public Health website.

More information on the vaccine and priority of distribution can be found on the CDC website at cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines.
