October 19, 2023

The 2023-2024 updated vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are available at Garfield County Public Health to protect against serious illness from COVID-19.

Vaccine is available for anyone 6 months and older. Flu vaccine is also available and can be given at the same visit.

COVID vaccine is offered on a walk-in basis from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed 12 – 1 p.m.) on Wednesdays in the Glenwood Springs Public Health office at 2014 Blake Avenue, and Thursdays in the Rifle Public Health office, 195 W. 14th St.

Pricing varies – public health accepts Medicaid, Medicare Part B, CHP+, RMHP, BCBS, and UHC insurance. Please bring your insurance card to your visit.

Free COVID tests
Four free at-home COVID tests are available by ordering online through the federal government.

How to isolate if you have tested positive for COVID
As with any illness, stay home when you are sick to avoid spreading illness to others. If you have or suspect you have COVID, test early and follow isolation guidelines if you test positive. Isolation begins the day after you test positive OR experience symptoms and lasts for five days of staying home followed by five more days of wearing a mask in public.

Therapies for people sick from COVID
For those sick with COVID-19, therapies may be available from your physician. Talk to your doctor right away to see if therapies are right for you. Treatment works best when administered quickly.
