Another step to putting the pandemic behind us and getting back to life as we had it is coming! Today Colorado Governor Jared Polis announced that Coloradans 16 and older will be eligible for the Pfizer vaccine, and those 18 and older will also be eligible for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines starting Friday, April 2nd.
"Just because we're opening it to all of Colorado doesn't mean they'll get it that first weekend," Polis warned.
He said it is currently projected that all Coloradans who want a COVID-19 vaccine will receive it by mid to late May, in about six to eight weeks.
Polis repeated his previously stated belief that life in Colorado would return to some level of normalcy by mid-June.
When asked about the statewide mask mandate Polis said Colorado is moving toward more localized enforcement of COVID restrictions, and that the state is targeting April 16 to start handing over those decisions to local commissioners and mayors.
