55 and older now eligible to schedule vaccine appointments at select locations

Governor Doug Ducey and the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) just announced that Arizonans age 55 or older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

On March 2, ADHS added approximately 50,000 vaccination appointments at State Farm Stadium and Phoenix Municipal Stadium for people age 55 or older. People in this same age group will also be eligible to schedule appointments at pharmacies and federally qualified health centers that are participating in the federal vaccination programs.

Those in other prioritized groups for vaccination can register for appointments at State Farm Stadium, Phoenix Municipal Stadium, Chandler-Gilbert Community College, and multiple other vaccination sites by going to podvaccine.azdhs.gov.

Information about all vaccination sites across Arizona and how to make an appointment can be found at azdhs.gov/findvaccine, or you can call the ADHS vaccine hotline at 480-573-0332, TTY: 711; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Make sure you wait for a representative to help you schedule an appointment.

If no appointments are available, be sure to check back often, as appointments continue to open up.

The vaccine provider list at azdhs.gov is updated regularly and includes pharmacy locations.

Download the guide for scheduling your vaccine appointment from ADHS with step-by-step instructions on how to create an account and schedule a vaccine appointment.

Cost: As a Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Arizona member, you will be able to get the vaccine for $0.
