PHOENIX – Arizona public health officials on Friday reported 422 new COVID-19 cases and no additional deaths from the disease.

The latest documented totals were 855,834 infections and 17,740 fatalities, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services’ COVID-19 dashboard.

The death total actually decreased by two overnight due to an adjustment in the data.

The dashboard also showed that 6,124,802 vaccine doses have been administered in the state, with 3,431,157 people (47.7% of the state’s population) having received at least one shot and 2,955,931 people fully vaccinated.

Hospitalizations related to COVID-19 have been fluctuating by relatively small amounts on a daily basis.

The number of confirmed or suspected COVID-19 inpatients in the state’s hospitals fell by 34 overnight to 525 on Thursday, the fewest since September 2020. The number of ICU beds used by COVID-19 patients increased by one to 144.

The state health department’s daily updates present case and death data after the state receives statistics and confirms them, which can lag by several days or more. They don’t represent the actual activity over the past 24 hours.

The hospitalization numbers posted each morning are reported electronically the previous evening by hospitals across the state.

COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, has no impact on some people and is seriously debilitating or fatal for others. Infected people without symptoms — which include but are not limited to cough, fever and difficulty breathing — are capable of spreading the virus.

Information about where to get tested for COVID-19 can be found on the Department of Health Services website.

Federally approved vaccines are highly effective in stopping the transmission of COVID-19.

For details about statewide vaccine availability, the ADHS website has a vaccine-finder page showing locations and registration information.

For information about metro Phoenix vaccine availability, Maricopa County Public Health has a locator page that lists pharmacies, government-run sites, health clinics and pop-up distribution events.

Appointments may be required depending on the provider, but many accept walk-ins.

The minimum age to receive the Pfizer shot has been reduced to 12, but it’s still 18 for the other approved versions, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.
