The Phoenix Suns and Mercury in partnership with Banner Health will host “Vaccinate the Valley,” a walk-up vaccination event June 22-30.

Arizonans will have multiple opportunities to receive the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for free at 230 S. Third Street, located between the Phoenix Suns Arena and the Jefferson Street Garage. Banner Health employees will be onsite, and second dose appointments can be booked for any Banner Health location within Maricopa County.

As an added bonus, each person who gets their first shot will have a chance to win a piece of autographed Suns memorabilia, just for starting the vaccination process.

The initiative is in support of the White House’s National Month of Action, a month-long effort to get more Americans across the country vaccinated.

This vaccination event is free and open to all Arizona residents. No appointment is necessary, but online pre-registration is encouraged.


Who: All Arizonans 18 or older, or residents 12 and older with a legal guardian.
