PHOENIX — Registration for COVID-19 vaccination appointments at Arizona’s fourth state-run site will open Monday at 9 a.m.

The Chandler-Gilbert Community College point of dispensing will begin operating as an Arizona Department of Health Services site Wednesday, Gov. Doug Ducey announced last week.

Appointments can be made online.

Only those in the current phase are eligible for the vaccine. You can check your eligibility at the AZDHS website.

The site will initially operate from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, aiming to ramp up to 24 hours a day as more supply becomes available.

It joins the existing state-run sites at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Phoenix Municipal Stadium and the University of Arizona in Tucson. Only the State Farm Stadium site, which debuted Jan. 11, is offering 24/7 service so far.

According to the ADHS website, all dose 1 appointments have been filled at the three existing state sites.

More than 400,000 COVID-19 doses have been administered at the state-run pods, according to the AZDHS dashboard.

We want to hear from you.
