Coronavirus (COVID-19)

SJBPH is responding to the global outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel or new coronavirus, first identified in early December 2019. Before this current outbreak, people had never experienced or been made sick by this virus. SJBPH is diligently working in Archuleta and La Plata counties, to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The information below is intended to assist citizens in Durango, Pagosa Springs, and all of the towns and unincorporated areas of Southwest Colorado in staying healthy and safe during this pandemic.

Due to the health risks of having COVID-19 and the flu simultaneously as well as the danger of overwhelming our hospitals, it’s especially important to get your flu shot this year. Get more information here.

COVID-19 Vaccine Notification Sign Up

Thank you for your interest in getting the COVID-19 vaccine when it is available! By getting the vaccine, you’re helping our healthcare workers get some respite, our businesses to re-open, our kids back in the classroom, and our public health epidemiologist’s ability to do more effective contact tracing. Thank you!

Eventually, most residents will be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine from their healthcare provider or a pharmacy. When the vaccine becomes available, we will notify the public on social media and via the local news.

If you would like to receive an email when vaccine is available for your group within the state phased prioritization, please click the link below.
