Park County's COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Vaccine Resources and Distribution Details

Park County is currently vaccinating eligible people in Phase 1 only and will move into subsequent phases as supply becomes available. Phase 1 focuses on healthcare workers, first responders, other frontline workers (educators, grocery and postal service personnel), and those aged 70 years or older. Eligible Phase 1 residents may complete the Phase 1 Vaccine Interest Form

There is no sign-up for Phases 2 and 3 at this time. When the vaccine becomes available, we will notify the public on social media and via the local news. Eventually, most residents will be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine from their healthcare provider or a local pharmacy. 

COVID-related Scam Alert: There is no cost for the COVID vaccine for anyone and you will not be asked for money to enhance your ranking for vaccine eligibility. On December 3, 2020, the U.S. Department  Health and Human Services Department Office of Inspector General issued a warning to alert the public about fraud schemes related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Scammers are using telemarketing calls, text messages, social media platforms, and door-to-door visits to perpetrate COVID-19-related scams.
