GLENDALE, Ariz. — A special tribute is on display right outside State Farm Stadium, the home of the Arizona Cardinals, on Sunday honoring those who have lost their lives to COVID-19.

More than 17,000 Arizona flags are arranged in the shape of the state on the Great Lawn, for each of the more than 17,000 Arizonans that have died due to the coronavirus.

Last week, the state-run mass COVID-19 vaccination site that had been at State Farm Stadium since January moved indoors to Gila River Arena as temperatures rise in the Valley. 

More than 800,000 vaccines were administered at State Farm Stadium, one of the first mass vaccination sites in the nation, accounting for nearly 20% of the total doses administered in Arizona so far.
