Colorado and Garfield County remain focused on vaccinating 70+ population before there is any expansion to other age groups

Local News

GARFIELD COUNTY, Colo. — Garfield County Public Health in partnership with Valley View Hospital and Grand River Health will be continuing to follow the State priorities of vaccinating people 70 and older before any expansion to those 65 and older.

People that are 70+ in age will need to make appointments with local hospitals to receive the vaccine. Appointments are only being made as the vaccine is available.

Yesterday’s announcement by the Federal Government caused some confusion, but statewide and locally there is no change. We will continue with the State’s goal of vaccinating 70% of our 70+ population by Feb 28, 2021. 

We will continue to update the Garfield County COVID-19 Vaccine page with current information as it comes in.

Here is yesterday’s announcement by Governor Polis that Colorado is not currently expanding its age criteria:
