DENVER (KDVR) — Three days after receiving his own COVID-19 vaccine, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis gave an update on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Although many Coloradans age 70 and up have expressed concern over the wait to receive an initial dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, Polis stressed again Tuesday that people in this age group will indeed receive their first vaccine dose in February.
As of now, Polis said, the state is halfway to its goal of vaccinating those 70+.
The state is also moving forward with a plan to begin vaccinating those age 65 and up on Feb. 8.
Polis also said educators are in the process of working with school districts and health care providers in the push to get all students back to in-person learning.
