Pima County, the City of Tucson, and Tucson Medical Center (TMC) are working in partnership to shift and expand their COVID-19 vaccination efforts to indoor facilities to beat the heat. The latest change involves moving TMC's drive-thru site to a walk-through facility at the City of Tucson’s Morris K. Udall Recreation Center, 7200 E. Tanque Verde Road, beginning April 19.
Another new site recently opened at the El Pueblo Center, 101 W. Irvington Road. The Kino Event Center, 2805 E. Ajo Way, will begin indoor vaccinations on April 12.

Please note: TCC and El Pueblo can only vaccinate 18-year-olds and up, as we only administer the Moderna vaccine!
