The mobile vaccination clinic in Pima County, which operates in collaboration with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is adjusting its time due to the heat wave and is beginning to move indoors.

The two FEMA vaccine sites will operate on the Lily Trace Track (4502 N. 1st Ave.) And Curtis Park (2110 W. Curtis Road) from Saturday, June 12th to Monday, June 14th.

The location is open from 7 am to 11 am and will resume vaccination from 7 pm to 10 pm to avoid peak heat. Previously, the clinic was scheduled from 10 am to 8 pm.

Future FEMA sites are moving to indoor, air-conditioned locations near previously announced outdoor locations. The National Weather Service issued an excessive heat warning to Tucson from late Saturday morning to Wednesday night.

All federally operated vaccine sites offer Arizona Lottery Scratcher Tickets for first-time recipients. Tickets are worth a variety of prizes, with a maximum prize of $ 10,000.

Pima County has partnered with a federal agency to offer a mobile vaccine clinic since May 3, and plans to continue operating its pop-up mobile site until June 26.

The county is currently providing vaccines at the Pima County Health Clinic. This includes the Teresary Health Center at 1493 W. Commerce Court, North Office at 3550 N. 1st Ave., 6920E. Includes Broadway East Office.
