50% of Arizona’s Population Vaccinated for COVID-19

PHOENIX — Arizona has reached a coronavirus milestone with 50% of its population, or nearly 3.6 million people, having received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

That compares with about 55% nationwide who are at least partially vaccinated.

Arizona’s vaccine administration peaked in early April with up to 78,000 a day before dropping by about half in May and even lower more recently.

The state has closed its mass vaccination sites due to the decreased demand and instead promoted availability of vaccines at health clinics, pharmacies and pop-up events.

Arizona reported 725 new confirmed cases Thursday and no additional deaths. Hospitalizations have fluctuated between 500 and 600.
