Vaccinations are available for anyone 18 and over in the state as of Friday. Moffat County has a drive-through clinic this Monday for any Colorado residents who need to be vaccinated. It’s the Johnson and Johnson one-dose. Moffat County Public Health asks that you wear loose fitting clothing so it is easy for nurses to access your arm from your car. And please be hydrated when you go to get vaccinated.  If you have trouble accessing it, you can call public health at 970-629-4002 and leave a message. They will get back to you.
