Governor Doug Ducey today toured the vaccine distribution site at the Arizona State Fairgrounds and announced ten Arizona health care frontline workers who will be among the first Arizonans to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
After the tour, the Governor also announced the state is distributing $15 million in additional funding to the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) for health emergency needs. The funding will be used to help replenish the public health emergency fund.
During the briefing, the Governor and Dr. Christ urged Arizonans to continue to follow health and safety precautions, especially during the holiday season, to slow the spread of COVID-19. ADHS has information on ways to stay safe and protect loved ones during the holidays at azhealth.gov/winterholidays
