  • Jan. 21 in Dolores at Joe Rowell Park, 18005 Colorado Highway 145, from 9 a.m. to noon.
  • Jan. 21 in Dove Creek at the Old Sun Dial, 315 U.S. Highway 491, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Jan. 22 in Bayfield at the Upper Pine River Fire administration building, 515 Sower Drive, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The mobile vaccination service is part of the state’s effort to provide convenient, free vaccinations. Gov. Jared Polis announced the launch of the Western Slope service in April 2021.

Appointments are suggested, but walk-ins are welcome. Photo ID and insurance are not required. Recipients will receive a proof of vaccination card.

Because of storage and handling constraints, the mobile vaccine bus will offer a limited number of vaccines each day on each mobile unit.

Users a you have a preference to receive a certain vaccine, or are between the ages of 5-17, it is highly recommend reserving an appointment slot in advance of your visit. Walk up doses will be available on a case by case basis.

“Please keep in mind all approved COVID-19 vaccines are equally effective at preventing serious illness,” states the mobile vaccination website. “No town is too big or too small for us to serve.”
