“Yavapai County, you have done a great job of fighting this virus…"


From Yavapai County Board of Supervisors Chairman Craig L. Brown:   

As of today, Yavapai County has distributed over 131,000 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, and over 54,000 residents are now fully vaccinated.  



This has been a monumental feat and I am very proud of those in the medical profession who have worked tirelessly to distribute the vaccine.  I am thankful for every resident who rolled up their sleeve and got the shot.  It is this incredible community effort has brought the number of positive covid-19 cases down so quickly and this trend to continue. 

You may have heard that over the next few weeks, Spectrum Healthcare Group and YRMC will begin to transition their Covid vaccine efforts to smaller more convenient locations within your communities.  Yavapai County leadership working with local providers believe it is time to start focusing on smaller and more local vaccination locations.  While Spectrum, YRMC and Verde Valley Medical Center will continue to distribute the shot, many Pharmacies now have the vaccine, as well as many local healthcare providers.   

Anyone 16 or older can now get the vaccine and I strongly encourage everyone to do their part and make an appointment at one of the many locations that have made getting the shot so convenient.  We will place a link to a webpage in the description that lists the locations where you can get a shot and you can also see the link on the screen. (Yavapai.US/CHS) 

The Veterans Administration is now taking any Veteran, their spouse or caretaker, regardless if they are a current VA patient or not, for walk-in opportunities to get the Covid vaccine. 

Yavapai County you have done a great job of fighting this virus and I could not be more proud of your efforts.  We have come so far and made some incredible progress over the past year.  Keep up the good work.  Keep washing your hands, physically distancing, wearing a mask in public, and staying home when you are sick. 


Thank you. We will get through this together.
