Can anyone here speak about their experience at the Tucson Convention Center walk-in vaccinations? We're scheduled for Thursday morning. How is the parking situation?

Dreading this.

Thanks for any information.

We opted for the UofA drive through and it was flawless. In and out in less than an hour. If you have a car it makes sense to do it that way. We didn't want to have to stand out in the sun. Let us know how it went though. I am curious.

I had a 10:15 appointment this morning. Arrived at 9:15 and parked free in the on-site garage. You have to enter from Church Street. They were very organized. Checked in, got the vaccine and waited the 20 minutes afterwards. Was in my car at 9:45 heading home. It was much easier then I thought it would be. Kudos to all the Tucson firemen, workers and volunteers, you did a great job...

We arrived just before 8 a.m. with appointments at 9. Got there early due to not trusting the parking deck situation. Turns out it wasn't a problem in any sense. There's no use going early thinking you might get in early. They check your appointment time. Everyone in the 8-9 timeframe were allowed in first having been checked off a roster. At 9 we were allowed into the line. Whitem3 above obviously had a different experience with the time. I am guessing 8-10 are the busy times. When we departed there was no visible line outside. From my perspective the line moved along steadily. It helps to have a copy of your appointment arrangements printed online OR have the confirmation email called up on your smartphone.

Social distancing was not enforced so if you are concerned about that you might opt for a drive through somewhere else. Also, the building was not well ventilated but everyone was masked. They give you a surgical mask to wear over whatever mask you already have. The thing is, it was congested so you are depending on the masks.

The whole process took less than 30 minutes. I am not including the time we waited for the 9 a.m. line to start moving. We could have avoided that but no harm no foul.

Once you go into another room to wait your 15 minutes to see if you drop dead, there is the option to set up a second dose appointment 28 days later at the same site. You also have the option of doing it online. We opted to have it done before we left. We were not asked to choose a time. Took what they gave us. This was the Moderna vaccine.

I went to the Banner North location on Feb 14th. It was a drive-thru. The workers mentioned that they had worked at all the sites in Tucson, so no place has any special group of vaccinators. My shot was given to me by a male member of the National Guard. Every aspect of my experience was smooth and well organized. Pima County has done a flawless job of setting this system up. This site is closing and transitioning to Banner South. Arrive close to your shot time. Drink water and move after your shot.
