Pima County continues to see vaccine demand outpace supply

The county's chief medical officer discusses the county's coordination with the state.

Pima County supervisors voted unanimously this week on a resolution requesting Gov. Ducey reconsider his decision to deny FEMA permission to operate vaccination sites in the county. County leaders hope to have 75% of its residents fully vaccinated by August, achieving so-called herd immunity, and they say the FEMA sites would help them reach that goal sooner. Tony Paniagua spoke to the county’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Francisco Garcia about the current supply and demand.
