With boosters and pediatric vaccines available, San Miguel County Public Health will expand vaccination opportunities throughout November with the help of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).

“November 18 marks the last day to receive a first dose of Pfizer in order to be fully vaccinated by the Christmas holiday,” said Public Health Director Grace Franklin. “We hope to provide our community with ample opportunity to protect themselves leading into a heavy travel season. Vaccination also protects our loved ones who might bear more risk should they be infected with COVID.”

Public Health will ramp up testing and vaccination clinics beginning next week including additional opportunities to receive a flu vaccine. Registration links will be published as soon as they are available on the County COVID Webpage. Most notably, the CDPHE vaccine bus will return to Telluride and Norwood offering Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and flu vaccines for all those eligible next week:

• Tuesday, November 9 – Carhenge Parking Lot in Telluride – 10 am to 6 pm

• Wednesday, November 10 – Carhenge Parking Lot in Telluride – 9 am to 1 pm

• Wednesday, November 10 – Pig Palace Parking Lot in Norwood – 3 to 6 pm

• Thursday, November 11 – Blue Mesa Parking Lot in Mountain Village – 10 am to 4 pm

During the CDPHE’s mobile unit clinics held this week, the team administered 411 vaccines in Telluride and 49 in Norwood.

Additionally, Public Health will host two pediatric-focused clinics for 5- to 11-year-olds the week of November 15:

• Wednesday, November 16 – Telluride Intermediate School Gym – 12:45 to 5:45 pm

• Thursday, November 18 – Norwood’s Lone Cone Library – 3:45 to 4:30 pm

The most up-to-date schedule for vaccine and testing clinics can be found on the County COVID Webpage. For other opportunities to receive a COVID vaccine, speak to a primary care provider or visit for regional availability.

Last week, a resident of San Miguel County passed away. The state has determined that COVID was a contributing factor to the individual’s passing, but not the leading cause of death.
