On Monday, Governor Polis announced that all Colorado residents 16 years of age and older will be eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine starting Friday, April 2. “This is a great step forward in helping to further our efforts towards herd immunity,” said Public Health Director Karen O’Brien, “It’s great to see the vaccine eligibility reaching high school aged individuals.”
For individuals aged 16-18, the Pfizer vaccine is the only option to date. Delta Health has a Pfizer vaccination event on Friday, April 2, in the Oncology building; appointments are still available, schedule an appointment at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c48abae2aa4fbc34-covid1.
The updated dial does not change Colorado’s current statewide mask mandate. Separate from the dial changes, the current mask Executive Order expires April 4, and at that time, the Governor may choose to make modifications. As we continue to vaccinate residents, it’s critical that we continue to do everything that we can to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, especially with the different, more contagious variants starting to circulate in and around Delta County; the same precautions exist—wear a mask, keep your distance from others, and wash your hands frequently.
