County, FEMA mobile vaccine sites adjusting hours because of heat

The Federal Emergency Management Agency and Pima County are adjusting the hours of their mobile vaccination sites because of the heat. For site locations and more information, visit pima.gov/covid19vaccine.

Pima County’s mobile vaccination clinics run in collaboration with the Federal Emergency Management Agency are adjusting their hours and beginning to move indoors because of the extreme heat.

Two FEMA vaccine sites will operate Saturday, June 12, through Monday, June 14, at Rillito Race Track, 4502 N. 1st Ave., and Curtis Park, 2110 W. Curtis Road.

The locations will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and will resume providing vaccines from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. to avoid peak heat hours. Before, the clinics were scheduled from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Future FEMA sites are moving to indoor, air-conditioned locations near previously announced outdoor locations. The National Weather Service has issued excessive heat warnings for Tucson from late Saturday morning to Wednesday night.

All the federally run vaccine sites are offering Arizona Lottery scratcher tickets for those receiving their first dose. The tickets are worth a variety of cash prizes with a maximum winning of $10,000.

Pima County has partnered with the federal agency to provide mobile vaccine clinics since May 3 and plans to continue running the pop-up mobile sites through June 26.

The county is now offering vaccines at Pima County Health Clinics, including the Theresa Lee Health Center at 1493 W. Commerce Court, the North Office at 3550 N. 1st Ave. and the East Office at 6920 E. Broadway.

The clinics will accept walk-ins during regular business hours, but the Health Department encourages vaccine recipients to call ahead to make an appointment. All three clinics are closed from noon to 1 p.m.

Visit pima.gov/covid19vaccine for updates on FEMA clinics, the hours of operation for county clinics and other places to get a vaccine in the county.
