VACCINE DISTRIBUTION in Chaffee
Chaffee County Public Health has two schedulers- one for testing and one for vaccinations.
“CCPH is aware that its online scheduler is full. Please do not contact our office to communicate this. We will only be adding additional first dose days and slots when we are guaranteed we will have enough vaccine. In addition, we are working with several providers to launch their vaccination programs as well. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment cannot guarantee frequency or size of shipments, so we appreciate everyone’s understanding as we distribute the inventory that we do have.”
– Chaffee County Public Health
While the CDC did make an announcement to prioritize the 65-plus population and other groups to receive the vaccine, the state of Colorado has not made that change in its phasing yet.
Our clinics are for Chaffee County residents only.
CCPH clinics are drive-through clinics held on Mondays and Tuesdays from 1-4 p.m.
Phase 2 is estimated to begin later this winter, and we are hopeful that with additional vaccination provider support.
Phase 3 might be able to begin as early as spring (If CDPHE permits and if there is a steady stream of vaccine and supplies.). However, the current state phasing is anticipating a summer rollout for Phase 3.
Please do not contact CCPH for questions on vaccination timelines with this new announcement.
