PHEONIX — The Arizona Department of Health Services last week expanded its monthly report on COVID-19 outcomes by vaccination status.

The updated report provides a deeper look at the benefits of becoming vaccinated, the department said Wednesday in a press release.

It’ll now display outcomes for people who are up-to-date for all recommended COVID-19 vaccinations, including booster shots, and those who have at least one COVID-19 vaccination but haven’t received all CDC-recommended doses.

Previous reports included those who completed a primary series but had no booster dose or at least one booster.

The change comes as health officials said it will let them see additional protection from a second booster dose, while also incorporating any new vaccinations recommendations.

Findings showed unvaccinated people ages 5 and older had 18 times the risk of being hospitalized and 47 times the risk of dying than those who were up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations.

It also showed unvaccinated people were 6.9 times more likely to be hospitalized and 7.2 times more likely to die than people who were vaccinated but not up-to-date.

Health officials recommended a booster dose at least two months after the last booster dose or primary vaccination.

For details about statewide vaccine availability, the ADHS website has a locator page with sites and other information.

Maricopa County Public Health has a vaccine-finder page covering the Phoenix area.
