Governor Ducey issues executive order to speed up COVID-19 vaccine distribution in Arizona


PHOENIX — #Arizona #Governor #Doug #Ducey issued an #Executive #Order #Wednesday to speed up access to the COVID-19 vaccine in the state.

#In a statement issued #Wednesday afternoon, the #Governor’s office says #Ducey intends to streamline distribution and establish additional vaccination sites.

#Officials say instead of each county having their own implementation plans, #Ducey wants the #Arizona #Department of #Health #Services (ADHS) to implement a state-directed allocation model to ensure a uniform approach to the vaccination of high-risk and high-priority #Arizonans.

#In a tweet #Wednesday afternoon, the #Governor said in part, “#This is a health emergency, and we need all levels of government and our health system operating as such. #Vaccines don’t do any good sitting in a freezer.”

#In addition, the #Governor says the state will be reporting daily on county-by-county vaccine administration data, providing full transparency for the public on the distribution of the vaccine across the state.

#Local health departments must also provide notice to ADHS within 24 hours of proceeding to the next phase of vaccine distribution. #Ducey says this will ensure that #Arizonans have quick access to information to make informed decisions about their health and the health of their loved ones.

#For more information on the state’s response to COVID-19, visit the #Arizona #Department of #Health #Services.
