Boulder County Launches Community Vaccine Notification Program
Boulder County residents can now sign up to be notified when they are able to receive the coronavirus vaccine through a new Boulder County Public Health notification system.
The new program comes on the heels of Gov. Jared Polis announcing “unexpected changes” to the state’s prioritization of who will receive vaccines first, according to a news release from the department.
The change significantly increases the number of people eligible to receive the vaccine during the first phase of distribution, including providing the vaccine to nearly 30,000 county residents who are 70 years old or older before teachers, grocery store employees and other front-line workers.
The system notifies people by email when they are able to receive the vaccine and is separate from the notification system for health care workers and first responders.
The community notification system is available at bit.ly/3ni2ybo.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
