ADHS Begins Scheduling Second Dose Appointments during Initial Visits to State Sites

People waiting on second appointments State Farm Stadium are being contacted this week

Arizona Department of Health Services

Arizonans receiving the COVID-19 vaccine can now schedule their second dose appointment on-site during their first dose appointment at Arizona’s state-run vaccine sites. This process improvement will further streamline the experience at the state’s 24/7 State Farm Stadium site ‒ and as of Feb. 1 at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.

“After standing up this site in just a matter of days, we have been working non-stop to improve the registration process, including for second dose appointments,” said ADHS Director Dr. Cara Christ. “We’re heard great feedback from Arizonans receiving their vaccine at State Farm Stadium — and this improvement will make the experience even better. More improvements are on the way, including upgrades to the vaccine registration website to make getting a COVID-19 vaccine even easier.”

Through this morning, more than 84,000 people have been vaccinated since the State Farm Stadium site opened Jan. 11. Across the state, 518,125 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered to 430,673 individuals, including 79,026 who have received both doses.

Every person vaccinated at State Farm Stadium is guaranteed a second dose appointment. For Arizonans who received their first dose at State Farm Stadium before this change, they will still need to schedule a second dose appointment.

An email invitation to register for a second dose is sent to patients who receive their first dose at State Farm Stadium. Some patients have reported not receiving this email. Patients should check their email spam folders. If they did not receive an email notice, ADHS will be contacting them by email or phone this week to help them schedule their second dose appointment. Those vaccinated at State Farm Stadium also can inquire about second dose appointments by calling the COVID-19 Hotline at 844-542-8201.

As Arizona receives more vaccine doses and adds more appointments, those in groups prioritized for vaccination can register for appointments at State Farm Stadium, Phoenix Municipal Stadium and multiple other vaccination sites at podvaccine.azdhs.gov. The only barrier to adding appointments at state-run sites is the limited supply coming from the federal government.

Information and registration links for vaccination sites across Arizona can be found at azhealth.gov/findvaccine. Those without computer access or needing extra help registering through podvaccine.azdhs.gov can call 1-844-542-8201 to be connected with someone who can assist. Note: You can use the patient portal at podvaccine.azdhs.gov to make an appointment for a relative in a prioritized group.
