AZDHS head: Arizona could reach goal of vaccinating 70% of adults by July 4

Officials with the Arizona Department of Health Services say a big reason behind the decline in COVID-19 case numbers and percent positivity in Arizona is the number of residents who are getting vaccinated.

Currently, 46% of adults within the state have been vaccinated, and that number is still moving up, albeit at a slow pace, as the vaccine has been made available at local provider sites, pharmacies, and other vaccine events.

When asked if Arizona will reach the goal of vaccinating 70% of adults by July 4, Dr. Cara Christ says the state could reach that milestone.

"We continue to work. We know there are a lot of misconceptions out there about the vaccine, and a lot of people hesitant and want to see others who have taken the vaccine. We would love to hit that 70%. We would love to hit that goal by July 4, but we will continue working whether we get there or not," said Dr. Christ.

The state will be doing a lot more pop-up vaccination and other community-based approaches in its ongoing efforts to vaccinate people against COVID-19.
