COVID-19 Vaccine

Colorado will continue to receive a limited supply of the first available vaccines from both Pfizer and Moderna. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has oversight of the distribution of all COVID-19 vaccine to local communities.

Prioritization

Phase 1A
  • Focus on hospital and outpatient healthcare workers, and residents and staff of skill nursing facilities, long-term care facilities, and assisted living facilities.
  • Residents and staff of care facilities will be vaccinated through the Pharmacy Partnership for the Long-term Care Program.
Phase 1B

This Phase focuses on moderate-risk healthcare workers, first responders, other frontline workers, and those aged 70 years or older.

  • Outpatient healthcare workers not affiliated with a hospital and providing direct care
  • First responders: will be notified by their employer when the vaccine becomes available for them.
  • All others: Vaccination locations and availability for all other community members who fit in Phase 1B, including older adults, will be announced via social media and local news. There is no list.
Phases II and III

It is expected COVID-19 vaccine will be made available:

  • From pharmacies through a federal contract with 12 national pharmacy chains
  • Regular health care provider offices

There is no list or required sign-up to receive the vaccine for non-healthcare workers. When and where to get the vaccine will be widely advertised when it is available to residents who fit in Phases II or III.

About the COVID-19 Vaccines

Vaccination Cost

While the cost of vaccine is free, many providers will be charging for the administration of the vaccine. Agencies may charge insurance for a set priced administration fee of approximately $23, and agencies providing vaccination for uninsured individuals will be compensated by the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Welcome to the Las Animas and Huerfano Counties COVID-19 Vaccination Registration Form. We are building this database so that we can efficiently and equitably administer the limited vaccine doses that we are receiving. The guidance on phases from the CDC, ACIP and State continue to be a moving target. This database will allow us to pivot quickly to the continued changes.

While filling out this form will inform us of the number of people in each phase, it does not guarantee a vaccine in any timeframe. When your time comes in the phases, you will be notified to schedule an appointment.

Each person in your household or in your care should register. This includes children, should a time come for a vaccine for younger age groups.
