Park County to Vaccinate Frontline Healthcare Personnel and First Responders
Park County Public Health expects to receive the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine this week. The initial supply of vaccines will be very limited for several months and will not be immediately available to the general public. With guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Park County plans to deliver the vaccine in three phases. The phased approach to vaccine distribution will save lives and end the crisis that has been brought on by the pandemic as quickly as possible.
By vaccinating people who are most likely to get COVID-19 first, we can keep more Coloradans safe. This means the first phase of distribution focuses on frontline health care workers treating COVID-19 patients. Park County Public Health will also focus on emergency responders, including police, EMS, and fire protection services.
The majority of early Phase 1 recipients will receive the vaccine through their employer or through the federal government’s Pharmacy Partnership for Long-term Care (LTC) Program. If you are among the people in Phase 1A and are not receiving the vaccine through your employer, contact the vaccine distribution location nearest you for more information. at a healthcare professional by completing this Healthcare Personnel Vaccine Interest Form.
