Where is my appointment located?
Individuals aged 12 and above who wish to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at MCPH will continue to enter through the side door of the MCPH building (510 29 ½ Road), where signage directs. Patients will then enter a community vaccination room.
Individuals ages 5-11 and their parent or guardian will enter the MCPH clinic through the front of the building and will be taken to a private clinic room. A parent or guardian must be present during the appointment.
Individuals receiving their second or booster dose of vaccine must bring their COVID-19 vaccination card. If you lost your card, MCPH can help you get a replacement. Call us at 970-248-6900 or click here for a digital record or replacement.
The COVID-19 vaccines continue to be our best defense against severe disease, hospitalization, and death due to the virus. CDC data show that in November 2021, the risk of dying from COVID-19 in the U.S. was more than 14 times greater for unvaccinated people than for fully vaccinated people.
