COVID-19 vaccine information

Latest vaccine info

  • HonorHealth is providing COVID-19 vaccinations to more than 17,000 healthcare workers and first responders as part of Phase 1A in Maricopa County.
  • HonorHealth operates a drive-through location in North Phoenix to serve 19 assigned Northeast Valley zip codes and is fully booked until Jan. 21.
  • As Maricopa County moves to Phase 1B, law enforcement, school and childcare personnel, as well as adults age 75+ are prioritized for vaccination.
  • As a community healthcare provider, HonorHealth will continue to serve law enforcement as well as school and childcare personnel in the same 19 Northeast Valley zip codes as Phase 1A.
  • HonorHealth is working directly with cities, towns, licensed childcare centers as well as public, private and charter schools in these zip codes to identify eligible employees and schedule them for vaccination.

A plan to vaccinate adults age 75+ is still being developed by HonorHealth and will be the largest priority population served to date. We are currently evaluating the best model to serve the unique needs of our seniors in the most efficient way and will communicate details as they become available.

Guidance on who is eligible for vaccination is changing quickly throughout this process, which is creating understandable confusion. Recommendations for who is eligible for vaccination are made at a federal level to the state level then to the county level. It’s up to the states and the counties to make the final determination on the populations they are serving at their vaccination sites. As the Northeast POD, HonorHealth is contracted by Maricopa County to provide vaccinations and must follow the county’s vaccination prioritization guidelines that are based on available vaccine supply. Learn more on how Maricopa County is prioritizing the vaccine. 

HonorHealth is following Maricopa County guidelines issued on Jan. 14 and will not be scheduling adults age 65 to 74 at this time. If you are part of this population, you will need to schedule your appointment through the Arizona Department of Health Services website.

You can also visit the Maricopa County Department of Public Health website for updates on the vaccine and the status of vaccine distribution in the county.

COVID-19 vaccine overview

The COVID-19 vaccine rollout began in December 2020 to Phase 1A, which includes first responders, healthcare staff and long-term care facility staff and residents. The distribution timeline is fluid, and vaccine distribution will go through multiple phases before reaching the general public. We will post updates and additional education resources to this page as more information becomes available.

The supply for the COVID-19 vaccine is currently very limited. Distribution is being prioritized according to CDC and Maricopa County guidelines and is not yet available to the general public. Based on these guidelines, healthcare workers and first responders are prioritized first. You can find more information about how the CDC is making prioritization decisions on the CDC website.

At this time, HonorHealth is not starting a waiting list for the COVID-19 vaccines for the general public as the guidelines, process, timeline and what vaccine(s) will be available are still not known. HonorHealth will continue to work with state and national organizations to support our community through the vaccination process.

Vaccination phases

You may have questions about when you can get the vaccine and what will be involved. A national independent panel of experts, the CDC’s Advisory Council on Immunization Practice (ACIP), will make recommendations on who will fall into the various phases. This graphic shows one potential way different groups may be prioritized.
