Pinal County Public Health ordered 10,000 doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on Dec. 9, which was the maximum allowed during this first order.
Pinal County Public Health chose to move forward with community partners in one collective effort vaccinating health care professionals, the first priority 1A group, according to a release.
“Pinal is excited to announce that a small number of community partners, previously approved by ADHS to provide the COVID-19 vaccine in our county, have received their first allotment today,” Dec. 21, the release states. “Those providers will vaccinate their internal health care workers. Shipments of the first allotment are still in progress for today, tomorrow and Wednesday, so not all ‘ADHS onboarded providers’ in Pinal County have received the vaccine yet.”
Providers will message health care professionals when they are ready to vaccinate.
Priority groups can be viewed on the Pinal County Public Health website, pinalcountyaz.gov/publichealth/Pages/home.aspx or in the table below. Longterm care residents will be vaccinated through a separate federal program which is in place.
