Who is eligible for the vaccine?

Colorado is currently vaccinating eligible Coloradans in Phase 1B.2. This includes individuals aged 65+, pre-K-12 educators and childcare workers in licensed childcare programs, and some continuity of state government employees. This is in addition to individuals who are eligible for the vaccine within phases 1A and 1B.1. 

For a description of each vaccine phase and eligibility, visit: https://covid19.colorado.gov/for-coloradans/vaccine/vaccine-for-coloradans.  

Where can I get the vaccine?

For eligible residents who fall within the latest vaccination distribution phase, below are several resources to connect you to vaccine availability. Elbert County will work to keep this list updated and accurate, but quantities and availability may vary by location. Please note that the clinics listed are not open for walk-ins and appointments are required. 

  • Participating Walmart and Sam’s Club locations across the state now offer vaccinations. Visit www.walmart.com/COVIDvaccine and www.samsclub.com/covid to check availability and schedule an appointment. 
  • Tri-County Health Department (TCHD): TCHD has a list of providers who may have vaccine doses available. Check their website and links often for updates and new providers. 
  • State of Colorado: For general questions and additional vaccine resources, visit COCovidVaccine.orgor call the COVID Vaccine Hotline at 1-877-CO-VAX-CO. To be as fair and efficient with distribution as possible, Colorado has developed a phased approach to vaccine distribution. View the following additional resources that are updated by the state every Wednesday:
  • Elbert County: The County’s public health department is not your primary source for vaccinations. The County depends on state distribution levels and is only projected to receive enough doses to cover 15% of the County’s eligible population. 

Note: If you are on several vaccine waiting lists and get a reservation confirmation for one, please cancel other waiting list reservations to accommodate others.
