The Yuma Board of Supervisors is discussing the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines

Johnson & Johnson’s new vaccine opens up opportunities for mass vaccination – reports Arlette Yousif of News 11

YUMA, Arizona (KYMA, KECY) – A mass vaccination site for Yuma County could be in the near future.

The Yuma County Regulatory Authority on Monday discussed setting up a 24-hour vaccination center for COVID-19 in the Civic Center. The location would be a joint effort with the Yuma Regional Medical Center and other government agencies.

Yuma county administrators say such a location could increase vaccinations by 96,000 people per month. That is in addition to those who are already getting their recordings.

The county is currently working on receiving doses of the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine, but will continue to give the Moderna version.

On Monday in the early edition of News 11, Arlette Yousif takes a closer look at the county’s vaccination schedule.
