SUMMIT COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), announced Friday that it will allow local public health agencies to begin vaccinations of Phase 1B.4 individuals beginning Friday, March 19.

Phase 1B.4 eligibility includes:

  • People age 50 and older.
  • Frontline essential workers.
  • People with high-risk conditions.
  • Continuation of operations for state government and continuity of local government. 

The intent of this classification is to prioritize workers who cannot maintain physical distance from others at their place of employment and workers who work in close contact with many people, especially indoors and in places with poor ventilation.

More information on the updated Phased distribution plan for Colorado can be found on the CDPHE website

Phase 1B.4 individuals, as well as currently eligible community members who have not yet received a vaccine, can register online using the PrepMod request form so that they will be included in the lottery system for Summit County Public Health vaccine appointments each week. Individuals not yet eligible are also encouraged to register and utilize the other category option when completing the online form.

Summit County has moved from SC Alerts to the PrepMod registration system utilized by many counties across the State of Colorado for COVID-19 vaccination appointments. The online registration system will allow individuals to put their name on a contact list for vaccination appointments in Summit County, as well as other counties. 

Individuals that are randomly selected in the lottery will receive an email notification with a link to schedule an appointment. Individuals can choose to cancel their appointment offer or schedule an appointment before the slot is offered to someone else.

The PrepMod registration link is now available on the Summit County Government Scheduling Vaccinations webpage

Individuals that require technical support with registration are encouraged to call the Summit County COVID info line at 970-668-9730. The line is staffed from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

As the PrepMod system is specific to Summit County Public Health vaccine distribution individuals are encouraged to research and register for vaccine information and appointments with other local and neighboring providers including health systems/providers and pharmacies. General information for Summit County providers is also available on the County website.

Public Health reminds the community that everyone, including those who receive both doses of vaccine, should continue to follow Public Health recommendations for wearing face coverings, washing hands and physical distancing to help slow the spread of the virus in Summit County.
