FEMA Mobile Teams in Pima County

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Two FEMA mobile teams will start vaccinating patients this weekend in Pima County.

Previously, County Administrator Chuck Huckleberry told KGUN 9 he had received an email saying the state wasgiving up on their original plan for a single large vaccination site, and would instead ask FEMA for six mobile vaccination sites able to do 250 to 350 shots per unit, per day. He said, unlike large sites, the mobile sites don’t need state approval.

Supervisor Dr. Matt Heinz said "They will simultaneously deploy to two sites in the areas of highest need."

Each team has a minimum goal of 250 shots per day, and will focus on two sites, one at Pima Community College East and the other at Pima Community College West, with multiple mobile sites as outlined below.

Each site will offer the Moderna vaccine and Johnson & Johnson as options.

Clinics will be open to the public at 10:00 AM.
