State sites, local providers offer myriad options for vaccination at your convenience
Phoenix AZ (May 14, 2021) – Arizona-run sites in the Phoenix area, Tucson, Yuma, and Flagstaff administered more than 6,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses Thursday and saw their greatest demand in the late afternoon as parents brought their kids ages 12 to 15 to be vaccinated.
And that’s just part of the demand across our state as that age group became eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Many pharmacies and other providers offer Pfizer as well. And the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) partnered with the Equality Health and HeroZona foundations at a pop-up clinic that vaccinated 650 children and adults in the Roosevelt School District serving south Phoenix.
Arizona is home to nearly 400,000 children ages 12 to 15. To date, 5,466,046 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to 3,098,785 individuals, with 2,572,917 now fully vaccinated.
ADHS Director Dr. Cara Christ spent much of the day administering vaccines at the Gila River Arena state site and at the C.O. Greenfield School event held in the late afternoon and extended into the evening to meet demand.
“At each site, I saw how relieved parents are to protect their kids from COVID-19 ‒ and to continue moving life back toward normal,” Dr. Christ said. “I’m one of those relieved parents. My 13-year-old son received his vaccine yesterday and soon will have strong protection against COVID-19 and the possibility of infecting others.”
Between state sites and local providers, there are many places open before and after school and through the weekend to get the vaccine for children ages 12 to 15. ADHS offers a vaccine finder at azdhs.gov/FindVaccine, which allows users to search specifically for the Pfizer vaccine.
All states sites offer the Pfizer vaccine, which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended this week for everyone age 12 and up. Appointments are available and the best way to reduce the required time for a visit, but walk-ins are welcome. Hours of operation for each are posted at azdhs.gov/FindVaccine.
ADHS is coordinating with rural counties that until now have received only the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines so 12- to 15-year-olds can get vaccinated.
A parent or guardian must accompany the child and sign a consent form in person that includes an attestation that the child is at least 12 years old. No identification is required for the child. Place of permanent residence isn’t a factor in whether someone can be vaccinated at a state site.
Appointments for state sites and some others are available at podvaccine.azdhs.gov or by calling 844-542-8201 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to be connected with someone who can assist in English or Spanish. Appointments aren’t required for state-run sites, but they are a way to reduce the length of a visit because registration is taken care of in advance.
There’s more incentive than ever for everyone 12 and older to get vaccinated. On Thursday, the CDC updated its guidance for fully vaccinated people, saying they can resume normal activities indoors and outdoors without masks or distancing in most cases. Those fully vaccinated are still subject to any federal, local, or tribal rules and regulations as well as business and workplace requirements.
“This is a very big step toward returning to our pre-pandemic way of life. And it’s available to everyone who gets one of the safe, effective, free, and widely available vaccines offered at state-run sites, pharmacies, and numerous other locations around the state,” Dr. Christ said. “Let’s all keep working toward community immunity. Roll up your sleeve and get vaccinated against COVID-19.”

So far, 4 children have died from this experimental shot. 2 children have had strokes and countless others have been vaxxed injured.
Parents, do your due diligence. Your child’s life depends on it.

Stop lying and Instilling fear over zero. Why didn’t you share the link of this so dramatic stuff of children dying(Perhaps it’s because you’re lying and it doesn’t exist). My BF left me…..held a women’s hand who died of a shot……Consoled a woman because she can’t give birth and had a miscarriage because of a vaccine shot…..I’m a nurse but I don’t wear a mask in my medical facility. These are all things that you wrote in the past my God when does the lying stop nobody cares what you say nobody’s listening get a life.
Say what? I never wrote those things you say. Who’s the liar here? I have NO IDEA what you are talking about.
I have written about the covid vaxx in the past having known 4 people who have died after taking the shot. Those that take the shot are putting themselves in harm’s way – there’s a bigger chance of dying of the shot than dying of COVID. That is a FACT.
If you are full of FEAR regarding the vaxx and giving an experimental vaxx to a child, you should be. Children are not affected by COVID, which is the FLU, and they are being used as guinea pigs. Any parent who has their child get the shot and if anything happens, that is on the parents – they are guilty of child abuse. You don’t use a 2 year old baby as a test subject for a vaxx that has killed and maimed more people than ALL other vaccinations combined.
The CDC faces other challenges in convincing people that COVID-19 vaccines are safe, however, due to another reporting system that documents deaths and side effects following vaccination: its own Vaccine Adverse Events Reports (VAERS). The most recent update, for example, showed that by April 30, 257,277 adverse events had occurred, including almost 6,000 deaths. Although these deaths could be entirely or mostly coincidental—as the CDC and vaccine companies assert—more than 40 percent of the deceased became mortally ill within one day of inoculation and almost 60 percent did so within two days.
To amass evidence, scientist do controlled studies of multiple populations of people counting hundreds, thousands, sometimes millions of people. That has not been done with this mRNA vaccine, but is taking place as we sit and read. Those who are taking the jab ARE the test group.
Scientist do not have enough data to show them its true risk to the various age, sex, and health groups. But the risks of dying of the virus is less than 1%. Only an idiot would sacrifice their children’s health to this experiment.
The risk are yours, not the CDC’s.
So where’s the vaxer.com article where four children died. Surely Someone as “smart” as you knows how To cut and paste!! By the way you and your alter egos did say those things. You just throw crap out there and hope your lies stick.
I left links – apparently censored by the editor.
And @JB Sedona, you’re harassment is why I rarely post here.
Get your vaxx. We need less of you.
Your links were not removed by Sedona.biz. ~Sedona.biz Staff
Isn’t it funny that your explanations regarding a lie(misinformation) that your explanation then gets exposed as a lie(more misinformation). Get your facts straight there JB……not the ones you “make up” in your Deceitful mind.
Thanks to the staff for a post we can believe. Also thanks to whatever electronics did remove the tripe jughead wanted us to read.
