    Pima County will expand COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to anybody 16 and older starting Monday, April 5, with registration at County-supported sites opening at 8 a.m.

    The change in guidance aligns the County with the state's decision to open vaccine eligibility at its sites to all residents 16 and older on March 24. The County, at that time, continued to vaccinate people 55 and older, anybody with high-risk medical conditions and essential workers.

    "We have made great progress in vaccinating those groups and are continuing our efforts to ensure that vulnerable and at-risk populations have access to the vaccine as well," said Dr. Theresa Cullen, the Pima County Health Department Director.
