Coconino County announced Tuesday that it will move to start vaccinating people age 35 and older with COVID-19 vaccine appointments available effective immediately.

County officials said vaccinations are being expanded effective immediately to include individuals in Phase 1C and those 35 and older.

On Monday, another Arizona county announced it would be transitioning to start vaccinating people 18 years and older with disabilities and high-risk medical conditions.

In a Facebook post, the Pima County Health Department said people who met certain criteria would be able to be vaccinated that include:

• People with disabilities (physical, intellectual or developmental, mental health or sensory) who receive long-term care services at home
• People with high-risk medical conditions who receive long-term care services at home.
• People who are members of the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS)
