Any Gila County resident may take part in a mass vaccination event from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. next weekend at the Payson High School football field, 409 W. Longhorn Road. The event was originally scheduled for this weekend but has been delayed until Feb. 27-28 due to weather affecting vaccine delivery.
Registration is now open for this upcoming event.
The Gila County Health Department and Command Solutions 4, in partnership with the Arizona National Guard, will host the mass drive-thru vaccination event. The goal is to administer 2,000 COVID-19 Moderna vaccines to the residents of Gila County.
This vaccination clinic is for any resident of Gila County. If you are not a resident of Gila County or cannot prove part-time residency, your appointment will be canceled prior to the event and you will be turned away at the point of registration.
To reduce traffic congestion in the parking lot, please arrive within five (5) minutes of your scheduled appointment time.
