EL PASO COUNTY — El Paso County Public Health has launched a new vaccine web page to "provide access to timely, relevant and credible information about accessing COVID-19 vaccines."

The “How will I get the vaccine?" page offers contacts for vaccine providers, details about eligibility and timelines, advice on staying safe as the vaccination process continues, and information on reporting adverse events, the department said.

Members of the public can also access hotline information on the page if they have additional questions.

“We understand the community’s excitement about the vaccine roll-out and also the confusion surrounding phased distribution,” El Paso County Public Health Medical Director Dr. Robin Johnson said. “The goal of our agency is to provide clarity about when and how each individual will be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and to assure a timely, organized vaccination program.”

The Public Health website already provided information on the vaccines, including frequently asked questions.

The department said it is working with health care providers and other community partners on the vaccine distribution plan. Updates will be made to the Public Health website as more information becomes available.
