Phoenix's professional basketball teams partner with Banner Health for 'Vaccinate The Valley' event

Mirroring the White House's goals, the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury join Banner Health to provide the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to Arizona residents.

PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns (NBA) and Phoenix Mercury (WNBA) have partnered with Banner Health for a new campaign to get more people vaccinated against COVID-19. 

As part of the National Month of Action, they'll host 'Vaccinate the Valley,' a walk-up vaccination initiative at the Banner Health location adjacent to the Phoenix Suns Arena starting June 22.

Arizona residents will have multiple opportunities to receive their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for free at the Banner Health Building, located on the east side of Phoenix Suns Arena on South 3rd Street and Jefferson Street. 

Banner Health employees will provide information to help schedule their second appointment at the closest location to them, with over 80 options across Maricopa County. 

As a bonus, one person a day will win Suns' autographed memorabilia for starting the vaccination process.
