If you are 75 or older, the fastest way to get vaccinated will likely be booking an appointment at the drive-through clinic at Cardinal Stadium. Appointments are available 24/7… but you MUST book an appointment.

News Release: January 11, 2021
Nearly 44,000 people in seven hours book appointments for state 24/7 vaccination site
Another 50,000 appointments available through end of January at State Farm Stadium
PHOENIX ‒ In just seven hours today, nearly 44,000 Arizonans have made appointments to be vaccinated at the state’s first 24/7 COVID-19 vaccination site at State Farm Stadium in Glendale.
Of those appointments, nearly 29,000 are for the site’s first week of operation.
The site, launched by the Arizona Department of Health Services in partnership with the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Arizona, and the Arizona Cardinals, begins offering appointments at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday for health care workers, first responders, teachers, law enforcement officers, Arizonans over age 75, and others at the top of the priority list for vaccine distribution.
“What great news to have so many Arizonans already able to take advantage of the increased vaccination capacity this site provides,” said ADHS Director Dr. Cara Christ. “Even better news is there’s room for plenty more: We have another 50,000 appointments available around the clock through the end of the month.”
Registration is available for the vaccination site at State Farm Stadium and several other sites throughout the state at https://podvaccine.azdhs.
In addition, individuals creating an account on podvaccine.azdhs.gov/ can schedule an appointment on behalf of relatives or dependents through that account, which is recommended for those with older family members or family without access to a computer. Those scheduled for vaccination will need to show identification upon arrival to the vaccination site demonstrating they qualify for phases 1A or priority 1B.
The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) has established the site in part thanks to a $1 million grant from the Ben and Catherine Ivy Foundation. More than 300 volunteers with Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Arizona will provide 24/7 staffing, while the Arizona Cardinals have provided the facility, tents, technical assistance, and other critical support.
ADHS has contracted with Walgreens to provide pharmacy support and ASU to provide logistical support and additional staffing, supplies, and resources.
