PHOENIX — The Arizona Department of Health services announced Tuesday, extreme winter weather across the country has delayed this week’s delivery of COVID-19 vaccine doses to the state.
Officials say because of these delays, some county health departments have told ADHS they have had to cancel appointments in the next two days.
ADHS says there are enough doses available for state vaccination sites and other sites administering the Pfizer vaccine to continue without interruption.
Officials say they are in regular contact with federal and local partners to monitor this situation.
ADHS has not specified which counties have informed them of cancellations, or how many appointments will be impacted.
Maricopa County says they are not canceling appointments but will continue to evaluate supply throughout the day tomorrow, and coordinate with ADHS.
ABC15 is working to figure out how counties will notify people if their appointment has been canceled, and if there will be an immediate opportunity to reschedule.
Adhs left out the counties that have reached out to them that will have to cancel appointments.
Seems like that information would be good in a statement – “some local health departments have told ADHS….” is all we know.
