As we head into the fall and see an uptick in cases of the Delta variant throughout our service area, getting vaccinated is more critical than ever. As of September 7, MFHC has provided 9,758 vaccines to our community members, but based on community wide data, we know that there are many left to be vaccinated. We are providing vaccinations at our Rifle, Glenwood Springs, Basalt and Edwards locations every day of operation and you can schedule an appointment just for your vaccine or you can receive it as part of your annual check-up. Your health is important to us, so we are making sure that as many barriers as possible are removed in order to ensure that you have access to this life saving vaccine.
For those who are already vaccinated and wondering about a booster there is still more to come. The CDC is currently only recommending boosters for those who are immunocompromised and right now these are the only patients we are providing booster shots to. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for updates on this as we will share whenever there are changes to the CDC recommendations that you should know about.
