Health District helps with COVID-19 vaccination
Over the past year, the Health District’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has ranged from offering emotional support to the community through its Connections phone line, to providing isolation, recovery, and quarantine services to those who lack housing.
In February, the Health District received limited vaccine doses and was excited to begin assisting with the vaccination of those within specific priority groups at our Bristlecone office. By March, special equity pop-up clinics were being planned and held at sites such as the Northern Colorado Health Network, the Cultural Enrichment Center, shelters for those experiencing homelessness, churches, and in Red Feather Lakes.
“Getting vaccinated will help keep you, your family, and your community healthy and safe, as well as hasten a return to normal. It’s how we will end the pandemic,” says Health District Medical Director James Stewart. “The best vaccine is the one you are offered, and we are committed to offering it in creative ways for those who are less able or likely to attend the large clinics.”
