Grand Canyon University (GCU) plans to help with coronavirus vaccination efforts in Maricopa County.
According to a press release, the university mall, located at 27th avenue and Camelback Road, will serve as one of the seven sites in Maricopa County to receive the vaccine.
The GCU site will provide pedestrian service by appointment to get vaccinated.
“GCU recognizes that those who are most vulnerable and highly dependent on public transportation needed an alternative site to receive the vaccine“, said Marcus Castle, GCU Emergency Preparedness Manager through a press release. “As a trusted community partner in the City of Phoenix, we know the hardships in our community and this is another way GCU can serve our neighborhood.”
Hours of operation for the GCU site are still being determined.
The University plans to have the site operational by next week [la semana del 18 de enero] for people in Phase 1B and those in Phase 1A who have not yet been vaccinated.
Who is part of group 1B?
· Teachers and child care workers.
· Law enforcement officers.
· Adults over 75 years of age.
· Essential services / critical workers in the industry.
· Adults with high-risk conditions in congregated settings
