Summit County residents 70 years and older are now eligible for COVID-19 vaccine appointments
SUMMIT COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), announced Wednesday that individuals ages 70 and older will now be included in Phase 1B of the COVID-19 vaccination distribution plan for Colorado.
Earlier today, Summit County had announced availability of vaccine to adults 75 and older. Summit County has adjusted its criteria to abide by the newly announced guidance, opening vaccination appointments to adults 70 and older. Summit County Public Health cannot grant any exceptions to the criteria listed in state guidance on vaccine eligibility or phasing.
In response to the updated guidance, Summit County Public Health, in partnership with Safeway and City Market pharmacies, will be offering COVID-19 vaccination to Summit County residents ages 70 and older. Online registration opened this morning for Phases 1A and 1B vaccination appointments available this Thursday through Saturday. All appointment slots are currently booked, and registration has been closed at all sites.
“We will continue to prioritize our health care workers and front line responders who have not yet been vaccinated, along with our residents ages 70 and older in the next round of vaccinations,” Summit County Public Health Director Amy Wineland said. “We will notify the public as soon as we know the timeline for the arrival of the next batch of vaccine from the state.”
Summit County Public Health reminds the community that everyone, including those who receive both doses of vaccine should continue to follow Public Health recommendations for wearing face coverings, washing hands and physical distancing to help slow the spread of the virus in Summit County.
