COVID-19 Vaccine Phase 2 starts Friday
Published on March 31, 2021
Weld County — On Friday April 2, Governor Polis is moving the State’s vaccination phases to Phase 2, the final phase for COVID vaccinations. Anyone who is aged 16 years and older will be eligible for a vaccine. In addition, all previous priority vaccination groups will continue to be eligible.
“The Weld County Health Department webpage continues to be one of the most efficient ways to register for and see where vaccinations are available,” said Shaun May, Public Health Services Division Director at the Weld County Health Department. “It’s exciting that we are now moving into the final vaccination phase.” Health officials continue to stress that the vaccines are safe, effective, and available at no-cost.
“Due to entering Phase 2, it’s no longer necessary for vaccine providers to screen people who want the vaccine,” May said.
The Weld County Health Department website has been made easier to schedule vaccinations. The Health Department in partnership with the Sunrise Monfort Family Clinic in Evans, is providing a large community vaccination site on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Vaccinations will also be provided at the Health Department’s South County clinic (4209 County Road 24½, Longmont) on Wednesdays. Please note, the Health Department is NOT providing any vaccinations at its main office in Greeley. Health Department staff are encouraging the public to visit the Health Department’s website frequently for updates on new vaccination sites, dates, and times.
Phase 2 is the last of the vaccination phases and is open to anyone age 16 and older. People from all previous phases will continue to be eligible for the vaccine. NOTE: If you are not a Weld County resident, please check with your local public health agency for vaccine availability as to avoid unnecessary travel and spread of COVID-19.
