PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) — A multipurpose arena in Prescott Valley will be the latest large venue in Arizona to become a COVID-19 vaccination site.

Cottonwood-based Spectrum Healthcare on Monday will open an appointment-only site called "Vaccination Station" inside Findlay Toyota Center, a 5,100-seat facility that has hosted events including professional basketball games, rodeos, concerts and ice shows.

The Daily Courier reports that Spectrum is setting up the site in a partnership with Yavapai County and other organizations and plans to administer shots to as many as 1,000 people daily.

Arizona on Saturday reported 7,316 additional confirmed COVID-19 cases and 169 deaths.
