The application of the vaccine against Covid-19 began this Monday in San Luis, Arizona, and will be directed to workers in education and child care, protective services, adults over 75 years of age, essential workers and industry, as well as adults in the high-risk population.
This is Phase 1B, implemented by the Yuma County Health Services District, which will include the remaining health and emergency services workers who did not receive the vaccine during Phase 1A, targeting this sector. .
The mayor of San Luis, Gerardo Sánchez, reported that there was a limited supply of vaccines, so several counties in Arizona will use the prioritization of vaccines according to the established phases.
Individuals who are interested in receiving the vaccine must be members of the current phase of the vaccination plan, and must make an appointment and present themselves with valid US identification, as well as a document or proof of employment.
To register and make an appointment you must access the website of the Arizona Department of Health Services. The vaccination will be carried out in the health district clinics on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
“As a Covid-19 survivor, I am relieved to see that the vaccines have begun to be distributed in Yuma County and are available to the residents of San Luis,” stated the Mayor. “I personally encourage everyone to get vaccinated to protect themselves, their families, colleagues and the community.”
