TUCSON (KVOA)- With the announcement of six pharmacy locations in Pima County that will administer a COVID-19 vaccine, many viewers wanted to know when they will be able to sign up.

The six pharmacy locations are listed in the Pima County administrator's memorandum from Monday.

Pima County Health Department director Dr. Theresa Cullen said that the county is not involved in distribution or how vaccines are utilized at these locations.

"So CVS and Walgreens will continue to provide vaccines through our long-term care and assisted living program through the federal relationship and then there is a second commercial pharmacy accessibility for vaccination, that is once again controlled two different ways by the feds or by the state but not by the county," said Dr. Cullen.

Fry's and Safeway websites have the COVID-19 vaccine sign up ready, but there are no dates available to register yet.

In the memo, county administrator Chuck Huckelberry stated that the state has declined the county's advice and that the pharmacies may be opening up vaccination to more phases.

He also stated in the memo: "We have little information as to how the state will notify individuals of these retail pharmacies being available or how individuals may register for and obtain a vaccine either through reservation process or simply walk in."
