Online registration opens at 2 p.m. today for appointments this week
SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County Public Health, in partnership with Safeway, City Market, and the Summit Community Care Clinic will be offering COVID-19 vaccination appointments to Summit County residents ages 70 and older this week. Online registration will open at 2 p.m. today.
“Summit County received over 2,100 doses of vaccine this week from the state as our allocation is no longer tied to our population census data from 2018,” Nurse Manager Sara Lopez said. “We anticipate continuing to receive vaccine each week and are grateful for the support from our community partners that will enable us to distribute the vaccine quickly and efficiently to our community members.”
COVID-19 vaccination in Summit County is occurring in phases outlined by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). Summit County is currently scheduling Phases 1A and 1B above the dotted line. These groups include health care workers, first responders and Summit County residents ages 70 and older.
Current state guidance will not allow any county to move on to the next prioritized group - Phase 1B below the dotted line, including teachers and other frontline essential workers, until at least 70% of the population 70 years and older in the state has been vaccinated, this includes primary residents as well as part time residents.
The state is prioritizing the 70 and older population for vaccination in order to save lives and reduce strain on the health care system. This population is at the highest risk for severe illness and account for 78% of COVID deaths in Colorado.
Beginning this week, the Summit County drive-through clinic will be restricted to health care workers and first responders, as well as full time local residents 70 years and older. Individuals must show a Colorado driver’s license or Colorado ID card with a Summit County address, or they will be turned away. Part time residents and homeowners who do not have a local ID, will have the opportunity to make an appointment at Safeway and City Market pharmacies. They will be required sign an attestation that they have been in Summit County for 60 days and plan to stay an additional 60 days and to bring proof of home ownership or provide a rental agreement or lease that demonstrates a minimum of 120 day residence.
An SC Alert will be sent out at 2 p.m. today upon opening of online registration for residents 70 years and older for the drive-through vaccination clinic as well as appointments at partner provider sites.
Additional Information is available on the Summit County Scheduling COVID-19 Vaccinations webpage.
