As the COVID-19 vaccines become more available in Yavapai County, the demand at the vaccination points of dispensing continue to decrease. Yavapai County has been fortunate to have community partners such as Spectrum Healthcare and Yavapai Regional Medical Center who have set up these large sites to vaccinate residents of our county. The amount of coordination of time, manpower, equipment, safety precautions and efficient delivery of the vaccines has been the ultimate service to our communities in the fight to beat this pandemic.
Spectrum Healthcare has announced changes in days/hours for their PODS beginning this Saturday, moving the Prescott Valley POD from the Findlay Event Center to the AZ Dermatology location Saturday, Sundays, and Mondays from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. The Cottonwood site at Verde Valley Christian Church, beginning April 12th will be open Wednesday, Thursday, and Fridays 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. through May 14. People with 2nd dose appointments on dates the PODs are closed can walk-in anytime during the days/hours the sites are operating. For this week, Spectrum offers walk-in appointments 8– Noon; YRMC is offering walk-ins too – both with scheduled appointments given priority.
The Prescott VA will accept walk-ins for their vaccination clinic. New legislation called the SAVE LIVES Act, will allow any Veteran to come to the VA for a vaccination. Use https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/ to register, or veterans (and spouse/caretakers) can go to the VA and complete a registration form in person and get vaccinated.
Links to the pharmacies and the Community Clinic Schedule can be found on the Vaccine Information page: https://www.yavapai.us/chs/Home/COVID-19/COVID-19-Vaccine-Appointments. The Pfizer vaccine [TF1] is offered at several CVS pharmacies in the county, which is approved for people age 16 and older. The Yavapai County Phone Bank is available to assist people without internet or computers at 928-442-5103.
