COVID-19 Updates

Please understand that this is a rapidly changing situation, we will keep you posted with new information as soon as we have it.

Grand County is in the final stages of Phase 1A and begins looking toward the early stages of administering populations in Phase 1B (above the dotted line).

GCPH will not be able to move below the “dotted line” of the phase 1B population until given specific direction from Governor Polis and the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment. Providing vaccine to non-authorized populations at this time will result in the penalty of being denied further vaccine delivery to vaccinate the Grand County community.


~ Vaccination Process ~
Grand County Public Health (GCPH) and Community Healthcare partners are working to prioritize COVID-19 Vaccine to our community. Our efforts are to vaccinate all populations in the timeline outlined and in an expedited manner. These efforts are based on the following factors:

- GCPH is adjusting plans, in real-time, as State priorities change or are adjusted.
- COVID-19 Vaccine logistics are a massive undertaking with limited staff resources and availability
- All Vaccine Providers signed an agreement to meet all criteria, or potentially have future vaccine shipments stopped.
- Vials of the vaccine contain 10 doses. Once a vial is punctured the 10 doses must be given within a 6 hour period, or doses will be wasted.

~ Vaccine Registration ~
In order to ensure that GCPH has committed individuals for each Phase of the distribution process, we have developed a Vaccine Registration Form for individuals who are not already being provided access to the vaccine through their employers and a Vaccine Registration Form for businesses.

IF YOU ARE ABLE TO RECEIVE A COVID-19 VACCINE BASED ON YOUR JOB INFORM YOUR WORKPLACE AND DO NOT REGISTER HERE.

- Persons who are ill with a fever should not be vaccinated.
- Any person with a history of anaphylaxis to a vaccine will be referred to the primary care provider to consult before the vaccine is administered.
- Persons with multiple food &/or drug allergies may be referred to their primary care provider. (Please let us know ahead of time. GCPH will assess and triage these persons.)
- Grand County Public Health is registering those who would like the vaccine, but GCPH cannot guarantee any timeline.
- Vaccination distribution is based on the availability of the vaccine.
- The COVID vaccine is free; however, there may be a small administration fee at some vaccination sites. People will be notified of that cost prior to getting a vaccination.

Today is Oct 16, 2020. The East Troublesome Fire continues to grow in size. The Grand County Sheriff has issued a pre-evacuation order for this area so you can prepare in the event that you receive a mandatory evacuation order. Please have all necessary items ready to go, such as a change of clothes, an extra pair of shoes, prescription meds, identification, wallets, cash, water and snacks. Don’t forget your pets and their food, bowls and meds.

If you have livestock to evacuate, do so now while you have time. If you do not feel safe, you can evacuate on your own.
