Tusayan has the second highest vaccination rate in the county at 73% according to Fire Chief Greg Brush.

Chief Brush said, "
The vaccination event was at least double of what we had expected from public feedback and previous attendance!  TFD sincerely appreciates the fact that Tusayan and Grand Canyon residents take vaccinations to heart.  The local area has the second highest vaccination rate in Coconino County, second only to Page.  Thank you to everybody who participated, as well as the IMAX for providing food to the overworked vaccination team."
