Appointments are now open for the Bivalent COVID-19 Booster at Mesa County Public Health. Anyone over the age of 12, who has completed their primary vaccination series or last booster at least two months prior, is eligible to receive the booster. 

Last month, Mesa County Public Health surveyed the public to gauge interest in this latest booster vaccine. Due to a large interest, Mesa County Public Health is reopening its vaccine clinic to accommodate the anticipated high demand. 

The booster and the initial Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine series will be available. You will need to bring your vaccine card with you to the appointment. Staff members can help you create a new one based on your records if you have lost your card.

For anyone over the age of 12:

  • The clinic will be open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 
  • By appointment only. 
  • Visit our website or call 970-248-6900 to make an appointment.

For children 6 months – 11 years old:

  • Appointments available throughout the week.
  • By appointment only. 
  • Call 970-248-6900 to make an appointment.

The Bivalent COVID-19 Booster vaccine is a mix of two versions of the vaccine. While the initial COVID-19 vaccines targeted the original strain of the coronavirus, this booster has been formulated to also fight against the Omicron variants that have spread throughout the U.S. In Mesa County, nearly all of the current COVID-19 cases involve the BA.5 Omicron variant.
