Hospitals and the University of Arizona have secured ultra-low freezers to store COVID-19 vaccines, the first of which were received by healthcare workers this week. The vaccine is arriving in Arizona as record-setting numbers continue and its per-capita rate of coronavirus spread has topped the nation. The Arizona State University wastewater technology that detected hot spots of COVID-19 has led to a new company and federal contract.
