Vaccine Updates

Park County, CO – Park County Public Health has announced the following COVID-19 vaccine clinics for the month of July. The clinics offer Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines available for first, second, third and booster doses for eligible populations. The clinics also now offer appointments for children 6 months and older, according to CDC recommendations. Appointments and walk-ins accepted.

While fewer children have severe COVID-19 infections than adults, children can still get sick with the virus and spread it to others. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can help your child stay healthy, keep them in daycare/school, and protect your family and community. 

Vaccines for younger children work the same way as vaccines for older children and adults. But the dose is smaller to make sure it’s safe and gives the best possible protection for this age group. Thousands of families volunteered to make sure the vaccine for younger kids is safe and works well. 

Questions? Please contact your child’s primary care provider.
