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, NOAH 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. NOAH will continue to work with state and national organizations to support our community through the vaccination process.
