ARENA VACCINATION

Due to the northern Arizona snowstorm, Spectrum Healthcare’s “Vaccination Station” at Findlay Toyota Center in Prescott Valley was canceled Tuesday. All postponed appointments will be rescheduled for next Tuesday, Feb. 2, according to health officials.

Visit www.spectrumhg.org for more information.

Health officials also plan a delayed start to Wednesday’s event in Prescott Valley, with a 10 a.m. start. People with an earlier appointment for tomorrow can arrive at 10 a.m.

“If you cannot make your appointment for this week due to the weather, your appointment will automatically be moved to the same day the following week,” a news release stated.

YCCHS officials said if you wish to cancel your appointment altogether you can do so at info@spectrumhg.org, and in the subject line please put CANCEL and include your name and date of birth. PLEASE DO NOT CALL.

Participants will receive an email confirmation of the new date if they do not cancel and do not show. People who cannot make their scheduled appointment the week of Jan. 25-29 due to snow will automatically be moved to the same day the following week.

Close to 500,000 Arizonans have been vaccinated with their first dose of either Pfizer or Moderna Vaccine and 65,000 have received their second dose, according to a news release.

State Farm Stadium in Glendale, home of the Arizona Cardinals, had to close early Monday due to weather and lightning.

“Some good news is that federal allocations of the coronavirus vaccine to states and other jurisdictions are expected to increase by about 16% next week, easing shortages that have intensified nationwide,” YCCHS spokesperson Terri Farneti said in a news release.

The weekly increase is forecast to go from 8.6 million doses to about 10 million doses. The vaccine is distributed on a population basis to 64 jurisdictions, including 50 states, eight territories and six major cities.”
