As you might have heard on the news, two highly-effective COVID-19 vaccines have now received emergency authorization from the FDA. We're very excited about this news and are pleased to inform you that both vaccines will be in Huerfano County soon for the first phases of COVID-19 vaccination.
In fact, we're scheduled for receipt of Moderna's vaccine by December 28th - at-risk staff and Veteran's Community Living Center residents will be the first to receive vaccinations from the batch of 180 (received as a batch of 100, followed immediately by a batch of 80). A Pfizer clinic in January is in the works as well with details coming soon.
