Several free COVID-19 vaccination sites are scheduled to open around the state over the next days.

Nearly two weeks ago, a 24/7 vaccination center opened in the west parking lot of State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.  On Feb. 1, another state site will open at Phoenix Municipal Stadium at 5999 E. Van Buren St.  Appointments for both locations should be made at the Arizona Department of Health Services website.

Beginning Monday, a free mass vaccination center will open at Findlay Toyota Center in Prescott Valley.  The center will reportedly be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day.  Members of phase 1a and 1b of the state’s vaccination plan (includes ages 75 and older) can make appointments to receive the Moderna vaccine at this location through the Spectrum website.

Grand Canyon University confirmed that it will open a Point of Dispensing vaccination site on Tuesday.  They hope to inoculate 500 – 800 people per day.  During their first week, they will serve those people from phase 1A who need their second dose.  Register at the AZDHS website.

A number of Albertson’s/Safeway pharmacies across the Valley will also offer free vaccinations for those 75 years and older as well as educators and police by appointment only.
