As the COVID-19 vaccine campaign begins to move away from focusing solely on large-scale sites, the number of doctors and pharmacies offering shots in Maricopa County has grown quickly. Today, CVS became the latest chain pharmacy to begin offering the jabs. Spots filled quickly, but with the Biden administration doubling vaccine allocations to pharmacies this month, more are sure to open soon.

The goal is to make a COVID-19 jab as easy and commonplace as getting a flu shot, and many pharmacies are now taking appointments from anyone who’s vaccine-eligible in Maricopa County. As a quick reminder, that currently includes: healthcare workers, K-12 staff, protective services workers (e.g. cops), emergency medical services workers, long-term care residents and staff, and people aged 65 and older.
