Sign up for COVID-19 Vaccination as Eligibility Expands to Phase 1B.4
Published on March 26, 2021
Weld County — The Weld County Health Department website remains one of the most efficient ways to register for and see where vaccinations are available. The "Where to Get a COVID-19 Vaccine" webpage highlights Weld County vaccine providers, including Sunrise Community Health Center, Dale’s Pharmacy, Banner Health, UCHealth, and many others.
“As we get more vaccines, we want to encourage more Weld County residents to register on-line and get the shot,” said Mark Lawley, Executive Director of the Weld County Health Department. “The vaccines are effective, safe, and available at no-cost.”
On Friday, March 19, the State of Colorado moved to Phase 1B.4, allowing people 50 and older, as well as additional frontline workers, and those with at least one high-risk condition to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. To date, Weld County vaccine providers have administered 108,376 vaccine doses and the total number of vaccinated residents is 68,533.
“We are grateful for all of the vaccine providers in Weld County who have worked hard to get shots into people’s arms,” said Lawley. “There is still a lot of work to do, but we are making progress.”
The current Phase 1B.4 includes:
- People age 50 and older.
- People in higher education, i.e. faculty and staff.
- Frontline essential workers in the food and restaurant services; manufacturing; public transportation; workers for the U.S. Postal Service; essential workers in human services; faith leaders; journalists; and essential workers from local government.
- People aged 16-49 with one high-risk condition (e.g. high-blood pressure, asthma, weakened immune system, cystic fibrosis, neurologic conditions, liver disease, or dementia).
People from all previous phases continue to be eligible for the vaccine. Phase 2 will be for the remaining public and the start date will be dependent on vaccine supply.
