COVID-19 Vaccine Information

CLEAR CREEK COUNTY'S COVID-19 VACCINATION GOAL

To provide vaccinations to all eligible members of the Clear Creek County community who want them, as quickly and safely as possible, following all applicable guidance.

We appreciate our County residents’ eagerness to get vaccinated and patience as we work to implement the safest plan in accordance with the CDPHE’s statewide phased approach and availability of the vaccine.

VACCINATION UPDATES FOR THE WEEK OF JANUARY 11, 2021


  • We recently learned from the State that CLEAR CREEK COUNTY WILL NOT BE RECEIVING ANY ADDITIONAL VACCINE THIS WEEK.
  • Therefore, THERE ARE NO VACCINATION CLINICS SCHEDULED IN CLEAR CREEK COUNTY THIS WEEK.
  • All of the doses of the COVID-19 vaccine that we have received have been administered.

HOW DO I GET REGISTERED FOR THE VACCINE?

  • We continue to collect PRE-REGISTRATION information for those in PHASE 1 / 1B who are interested in receiving the vaccine:
  • Please complete this brief electronic form:  https://forms.gle/CM4Cu2MB1e9JFmF38
  • If you are unable to complete this online form, please leave a message, including your name and phone number, on our COUNTY COVID HEALTH LINE at 303-670-7528 for assistance.
  • PLEASE NOTE:  After you are pre-registered, when your vaccination phase/category becomes eligible, you will be notified via email (or phone if you are not able to receive email) and will receive a link to the online self-scheduling system.

WHAT VACCINATION PHASE ARE WE IN RIGHT NOW?

In Clear Creek County, we are still in VACCINATION PHASE 1 / 1B (above the dotted line on the CDPHE chart below), with the current priority groups per the State being:

  • Full-time Clear Creek County residents aged 70+
  • People employed within Clear Creek County whose jobs are in categories 1A and 1B – all first responders (EMS, Firefighters, Law Enforcement), health care workers with direct contact with COVID-19 patients, and all other health care workers (home health, hospice, dentists, pharmacists, etc.) 
  • If you are employed in a 1A or 1B job NOT operating in Clear Creek County, you need to contact your employer and/or county of employment for getting vaccinated.  This applies even if you are a Clear Creek County resident.

CAN I PRE-REGISTER FOR A FUTURE CATEGORY or PHASE?

Currently you can pre-register for categories in PHASE 1, above the dotted line, ONLY.  See the CDPHE chart below for details.  You can complete the electronic pre-registration form even if you are not eligible for the current category, as long as the category is in Phase 1.  When you pre-register, check the appropriate category for your situation and you will be notified when registration opens up for that category.

WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT? 

Our allotment of vaccine doses from the State of Colorado is based on our number of primary residents, as well estimates of those employed in the county.  The county receives a limited amount of vaccine from the state, typically weekly, with three to four days’ notice.  We currently receive the Moderna vaccine, which requires 2 doses one month apart.

We appreciate your ongoing patience as we continue to navigate through the changing vaccination phases/categories and logistical challenges.  As we receive new information, we will update our website to provide details regarding the next eligible group for vaccinations and clinic details

Until the majority of the population is vaccinated, the best way to keep ourselves and our communities healthy is to:

  • Stay home as much as possible, do not travel, and avoid in-person social gatherings.
  • When in public, wear a mask, keep your distance from others, and practice good hygiene.

Once you have received a COVID-19 vaccine, it is imperative that you continue to follow public health guidelines for the health and safety of our community. Please continue to wear a mask and social distance. 

THE STATE OF COLORADO AND CLEAR CREEK COUNTY'S MASK MANDATES REMAIN IN EFFECT.
