Gov. Doug Ducey says the state can meet President Joe Biden’s goal to offer vaccinations to everyone by May 1, as long as the state gets enough doses.

Ducey says he's focused on vaccinating those who want shots but will turn his attention to people who are apprehensive and those who can't easily access a drive-thru mass vaccination venue.

Ducey's health director Dr. Cara Christ says the state's supply of vaccines is projected to increase significantly in April. Arizona is currently vaccinating people 55 and older with plans to lower the threshold to age 45 by April 1.
