“The convenience of having a mass clinic right here in Pitkin County is coming to a close in part because we’ve had a tough time getting people to sign up for vaccines in the last few weeks,” said Incident Commander Phylis Mattice. “With clinics starting to open with primary care providers, pharmacies and a state run clinic in Grand Junction it appears people who were motivated to find an appointment went elsewhere.”
“The transition does not mean that we are going to stop administering vaccines, we are just changing the scale at which they will be administered. The focus is shifting to consistency and accessibility,” said Carly Senst, Pitkin County Public Health vaccine coordinator.
Pitkin County launched on the website a Vaccine Finder highlighting local locations providing vaccines vaccination provider resources and the Colorado vaccination provider page to find vaccination locations across the state.
