He did not point out the appearance of a brand-new, more contagious, stress of COVID-19 found by the state lab in a sample from a Colorado National Guardsman operating in an Eastern Plains nursing house. It was the first detection of the strain in the U.S., and a second guardsman is likewise thought of being contaminated with it.

The statement triggered phones to ring at health centers, doctors’ offices and county public health agencies across the state as senior citizens sought to discover details about where and when they will be immunized– information that do not currently exist.

“We understand that people are delighted and anxious to get their vaccine,” stated the Garfield County Public Health director, Yvonne Long, in a release. “We are sorry for any confusion, as the requirements for 1B altered today. Though we do not yet have sufficient vaccines in Garfield County to immunize those in the 70-plus age classification, we are dealing with a plan to do this when we are able.”

Late Wednesday, CDPHE released a release acknowledging the lack of information around the expansion of eligibility and asking Coloradans to call 303-389-1687 or 877-462-2911, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-10 p.m. or Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m to find out more on vaccine distribution “We comprehend that people are thrilled and nervous to get their vain the coming days.”
