    File: computerIt has come to our attention that a large number of people who have attempted to register for a COVID-19 vaccination have been incorrectly completing the online form by inputting their ZIP code and city in reverse. For example, users are inputting 21578 instead of 85712 or noscuT instead of Tucson in the mistaken belief that it will expedite the process and allow them to more quickly make an appointment. However, doing so has the opposite effect, causing registrations to be rejected initially and requiring that information to be corrected before applications may be processed.
    We want to be clear: there is no "back door" to vaccine registration.

    Each section must be completed correctly in order for applications to be accepted by the registration system and appointments to be made.
    Currently, Pima County is offering vaccinations for people in groups through PHASE 1B.1.d.1— people aged 70 years and older; prioritized essential workers; protective service occupations, such as law enforcement, corrections, firefighters, and other emergency response staff, 911 call center staff and trainees in high-risk settings and court personnel; and K-12 and higher education teachers and staff, student teachers, and child care workers.
