TUCSON, ARIZONA – January 6, 2022 – As a County agency that works to protect the public and serve vulnerable populations, the Pima County Attorney’s Office (PCAO) is sharing its numbers of employees who are fully vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus.
The initial deadline for Pima County employees who work with vulnerable populations to be fully vaccinated was Jan. 1, 2022. At that time, PCAO had 194 such employees, as defined by the Pima County Administrator, of which 186 (95.88 percent) were fully vaccinated. Of the eight (8) PCAO employees who worked with vulnerable populations and are not vaccinated, seven (7) have since been reassigned and are either working from home or are isolated from other PCAO employees, and one (1) has applied to the County for reappointment.
“As of Jan. 1, 100 percent of PCAO employees who work with vulnerable populations are fully vaccinated,” Pima County Attorney Laura Conover said. “Furthermore, no PCAO employees were terminated due to a refusal to vaccinate by the County’s deadline.”
Of 322 full-time and part-time PCAO employees, 297 (92.24 percent) are fully vaccinated. Additionally, employees who work inside the Legal Services Building, which houses PCAO, are required to comply with strict masking and social distancing requirements at all times.
