Yavapai County Vaccine Supply Reduced to 10% of Order Featured

Yavapai County’s Vaccine Supply Reduced to 10% of Order

 

Big Idea

  • The State of Arizona has only allotted 10% of the requested vaccines to Yavapai County
  • This will limit the number of vaccines given noticeably
  • The County is trying to ensure that the Spectrum and YRMC PODs can continue their program

Allocations of vaccine have been severely limited

 

According to the Yavapai County Community Health Services (YCCHS), "The dashboard determining community spread of COVID-19 in Yavapai County was updated for the two weeks ending January 10th indicating a decrease in cases per 100,000 from 637/100K to 474/100K, a decrease in percent positivity form 24% to 20.8%, and a decrease in hospitalizations for COVID-like illnesses from 22.2% to 20.2%. YCCHS is hopeful this trend continues.


"It is important to continue with the CDC mitigation measures - wearing masks, washing your hands, and making sure that you keep space between you and the next person.

"With Yavapai County residents in Phase 1a and Phase 1b receiving their first dose of vaccine, and many more awaiting appointments to receive theirs, YCCHS IS CONCERNED ABOUT THE VACCINE SUPPLY AS THE STATE HAS ONLY OFFERED 10% OF THE VACCINES ORDERED FOR NEXT WEEK. (Capitalization added.)

 

"YCCHS is working with our community partners to shift supply to Spectrum’s “Vaccine Stations” and YRMC’s point of dispensing (POD) to ensure enough to get through planned PODs over the weekend and into next week.”

 

According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, here is what has been ordered this week:

YCcHS explains, "If you need to cancel an appointment with the Spectrum, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

"For those who have received their vaccination, please maintain the proper precautions to protect those who are the most at risk of the worst outcomes such as our elderly or people in health care or even our young children who have underlying conditions.”

The KFF.org (Kaiser Family Foundation) website tracks the vaccines distributed and administered. This information is as of January 29, 2021. Allotment appears to be roughly based on population
