COVID-19 Information


The Center for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) has updated the COVID-19 vaccine recommendations.

  • New COVID-19 vaccines recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older.
  • They are designed to target the variants currently circulating this fall and winter respiratory illness season.

The new COVID-19 vaccine is beginning to arrive in at the County Health Department and at pharmacies and healthcare providers around the county. 

Vaccine coverage

  • For adults and children who are uninsured or underinsured, you may receive your COVID-19 vaccine free of charge through our Vaccine for Adults or Vaccine for Children Programs, please call any one of our clinics to schedule you or your childs appointment.

How can I get tested for COVID-19?

There are many locations throughout Cochise County that offer testing, including most primary care physicians. The most up-to-date list of testing sites can be found at the ADHS Testing Locations Page.

The County Health Department does not conduct tests. Tests are conducted by local healthcare providers and sent out to laboratories for analysis. Turnaround times for results vary by lab and volume. Some providers offer rapid testing as well.
