Colorado Phase 1B.3 Commences

(March 5, 2021) San Miguel County Public Health has received an allocation of 500 of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals’ single-dose vaccines, from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).

This single allocation will augment vaccine distribution for the remainder of the month until supply increases which is expected in April.

Today marks another expansion of vaccine eligibility in Colorado with the commencement of Phase 1B.3. Eligible residents include those frontline essential workers in agriculture and grocery, residents 60 years of age and older and 16 to 59 years of age with two high-risk conditions. This phase, consisting of nearly 1 million Coloradans, is expected to take three to five weeks with current supply. Public Health will host their first clinic addressing newly eligible residents in Telluride on Saturday followed by two clinics in Norwood next week.
