We offer the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines which are authorized for ages 18 and older. (Pfizer will be the vaccine is authorized for ages 16 and older. PCPH currently does not have Pfizer vaccine. Please see other locations for the Pfizer vaccine at this time.)
In the upcoming days, the general public in Park County should see additional vaccination clinics and appointments by numerous providers to meet local demand. Visit Vaccine Resources | Park County, CO for regular clinic announcements and updates.
Large-scale vaccination sites are also scheduled throughout the state, including El Paso and Pueblo Counties. Registration for the general public is available below:

As of the end of March, 1 million Coloradans were fully vaccinated, and over 1.5 million have received their first dose. On Saturday, Governor Jared Polis announced that 80% of Coloradans 70 years and older have now received at least one dose of the vaccine.
While this comes as great news, it’s going to take some time to get the vaccine to all Coloradans who want to be vaccinated. Some may be able to schedule an appointment for next week. For others, it may take a few weeks. We anticipate that everyone who wants it will have access to the vaccine before the end of May.
