Arizona is getting fewer doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine than expected for the week of Dec. 20, according to the state Department of Health Services.
Arizona will receive 41,925 doses instead of the 70,200 the state was expecting to order. The Department of Health Services asked the CDC for an explanation of why it will receive fewer doses of the Pfizer vaccine but as of Friday afternoon had not yet received an answer.
Pima County officials said they expected to receive 10,000 Pfizer vaccines next week but state officials told them the county will now receive fewer than 2,000 doses.
The state was also allocated 119,400 doses of the Moderna vaccine. Arizona placed the order for those and expects to receive them by Dec. 23. Pima County is in line to get 17,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine.
According to ADHS, 37,300 of the Moderna doses will go to residents and staff in skilled nursing facilities beginning the week of Dec. 27.
