4/26/21 Update

Vaccination Clinic Schedule Update and Walk-Ins

In an attempt to better meet the needs of our community, Gunnison County vaccination clinics will begin accepting walk-ins with no prior registration and also altering the hours of our vaccine clinics.

Due to vaccine availability on the day we may not be able to accommodate every walk-in request. We will continue to offer walk-ins at all scheduled clinics. 

Our upcoming clinics are as follows:

  • 4/29/21 (Thursday) 3pm-5:30pm
    • Fred Field Center
      • Pfizer and Moderna will be available
  • 5/1/21 (Saturday) 10am-11:30am
    • Crested Butte Community School (multi-purpose room)
      • Pfizer will be available
  • 5/6/21 (Thursday) 11:30am-1:00pm & 4pm-6pm
    • Fred Field Center
      • 11:30am-1:00pm Johnson & Johnson will be available
      • 4pm-6pm Pfizer and Moderna will be available

Gunnison County is working on future scheduling updates to better accommodate the needs of our community.

The best way to find the next scheduled clinic is through the Call Center at 970-641-7660.

Additionally, Clark’s Market in Crested Butte is now offering vaccination appointments.

Push for Green!

As of 4/26/21 we have 8,232 fully vaccinated adults in Gunnison County. We are quickly closing in on our goal of 10,000 fully vaccinated county residents. You all heard the call and Gunnison County residents are rising to the challenge! Get vaccinated anywhere you can and use your local address.

We encourage those who have started the vaccination process to finish the cycle by receiving their second dose as scheduled. Second dose appointments continue to be scheduled through our County database. If you got your first shot at a Gunnison County clinic, you will receive a scheduling update when it is time for your second dose.

If you, or someone you know, received your first shot outside of our community and are trying to schedule a second dose locally, please reach out to the Call Center at 970-641-7660 and they can help you get scheduled for a second dose.

Our total vaccination progress is being updated on Monday evenings and can be found on our dashboard here.

Phase 2 Vaccinations and Young Adults

All adults 16 and older who are interested in being vaccinated are now eligible. Currently, the only vaccine approved for populations as young as 16 is Pfizer. Gunnison County has great access to the Pfizer vaccine and we will be publishing when Pfizer is available at our walk-in clinics.

A reminder that those under 18 should receive consent from their parent/legal guardians and need to have an adult present to consent for vaccination.

Virtual Town Halls & Updates

We have adjusted the sequence of our written updates and Town Halls. Both will occur on Mondays. Our Virtual Town Halls continue at 4:00 PM on Monday. Sign up ahead of time here.

For the 5/3/21 Virtual Town Hall we will be discussing the reauthorization of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

If there is a topic you would like to see covered, please email ideas to, pio@gunnisoncounty.org.

Community Testing Update

All testing provided at the GVH testing site will be scheduled Monday-Friday from 9am-12pm.

Appointments continue to be made through the Gunnison County Call Center at 970-641-7660. Those seeking testing who are asymptomatic should continue to request testing through the Call Center. A reminder testing can be scheduled for any reason.

We are working with CDPHE to schedule a mass-testing event for the end of April in the North Valley following Spring Break. A date has not yet been confirmed. Stay tuned for more information.

State Exposure Notification App

The state’s new exposure notification app is now live. Info on how to set it up can be found here. Even a small uptake of the app in our community can positively impact our outcomes. While alone it won’t be a game changer, combined with our other tools- social distancing, masks, hand hygiene- we can continue to reduce the spread.

Call Center: 970-641-7660

The Call Center is open from 8 a.m.-12p.m. and 1 p.m.- 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.

The Call Center is available to help with questions about vaccination or testing.
