Coconino County will open an additional 200 COVID-19 vaccination appointments for the week of Feb. 8 – 12 at the Fort Tuthill County Park vaccination site.

Registration will be available beginning at noon on Friday, Feb. 5. Those interested in scheduling an appointment can visit coconino.az.gov/covid19vaccine and navigate to the SPECIAL REGISTRATION - Fort Tuthill, Flagstaff First Dose link. Individuals without internet access or those who require assistance can call the Coconino County COVID-19 Information Line at 928-679-7300. 

Registration is open to eligible individuals in Phase 1a, including healthcare personnel and long-term care facility residents and staff, and Priority Groups within Phase 1b. Priority populations in Phase 1b are: 

  • Education and childcare workers, teachers and staff. This includes all school and higher education staff who normally interact with other staff and students, and bus drivers, cafeteria workers, facilities staff etc. 
  • Law enforcement and protective services (corrections, other emergency response staff). 
  • Individuals aged 65 and older. 

The timing of vaccine distribution among remaining populations within Phase 1b, including other essential workers and adults with high-risk conditions in congregate settings, and Phases 2 and 3 remaining populations will depend on several factors. These include number of vaccine types have been approved, how many doses have been manufactured and allocated to Coconino County, how many individuals decide to get vaccinated, and other logistical factors. Vaccine supplies remain low, and Coconino County continues to advocate for additional doses.  

The community is encouraged to check Coconino County’s vaccine webpage at coconino.az.gov/covid19vaccine for updates and information. Links to vaccination partner registration options are included on the website. Individuals without Internet access and who require assistance can call the COVID-19 Information Line at 928-679-7300.
