PHOENIX, AZ (STL.News) The state-run vaccination site at Phoenix Municipal Stadium, which has administered nearly 200,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, will relocate Monday, April 12 to Desert Financial Arena on Arizona State University’s Tempe campus.
“Arizonans have come together to protect our communities and expand vaccinations quickly,” said Governor Doug Ducey. “I’m grateful to all the volunteers, staff members and health care professionals who are helping Arizonans get vaccinated, and to Arizona State University for their continued partnership.”
The shift will move vaccination operations indoors as temperatures grow warmer at Arizona State University’s (ASU) venue for basketball and other large-scale indoor events. Phoenix Municipal Stadium, located just northwest of the Tempe campus, is ASU’s baseball facility.
“Arizona State University has been an invaluable partner and resource as the state of Arizona has developed mass-vaccination sites that have now administered more than 1 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS). “Phoenix Municipal Stadium has been a tremendous success, and we look forward to continued progress as this operation moves indoors at ASU.”
Those who already have second-dose appointments scheduled at Phoenix Municipal Stadium for Monday, April 12, and later are being informed of the new location for this operation.
