The COVID-19 vaccine has started to be administered to all eligible patients in Coconino County within the Phase 1a and 1b criteria.

The Coconino County website states that health care professionals and long-term care residents and providers are among the first who are eligible for the vaccine in Phase 1a.

Similarly, Phase 1b includes education and childcare workers, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, facilities staff, law enforcement and protective services and individuals who are aged 75 and up. 

NAU President Rita Cheng announced NAU’s plan for the implementation of the vaccine rollout for the campus community via email on Friday.

“NAU is working with Coconino County in accordance with standards set forth by the Arizona Department of Health Services,” Cheng’s email stated. “Currently, the county is administering the vaccine to individuals in Phase 1A, which includes health care workers. NAU has provided registration information to individuals in this first population.”
