PHOENIX, Ariz. (KGUN) — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey toured a COVID-19 distribution facility in Phoenix today.

After touring the center at the Arizona State Fairgrounds, Ducey addressed the media where he announced that the state is distributing $15 million in additional funding to the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) for health emergency needs.

Following the press briefing, multiple health care workers, including Dr. Cara Christ, received the COVID-19 vaccine.

“The vaccine is here, and we’re getting it to health care workers promptly,” said Governor Ducey. “This is a significant step in the fight against COVID-19 — but the fight isn’t over. We continue to urge Arizonans to follow mitigation measures and get the COVID-19 vaccine when possible. I’m grateful to the frontline workers, health care professionals and everyone working hard to get the vaccine distributed quickly and efficiently.”
