El Paso County COVID-19 data and vaccine update

El Paso County, CO – As of June 14, nearly 58 percent of El Paso County’s vaccine-eligible population—including federal estimates—have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, with almost 50 percent fully vaccinated. The state has set a statewide goal of vaccinating 75 percent of the eligible population with one dose by July 4. At the current rate, El Paso County will likely be just short of 60 percent vaccinated by that date.   

As more people return to their pre-pandemic activities and restrictions loosen, it creates more opportunity for disease transmission and exposure. For individuals who are unvaccinated, they remain at an increased risk for serious illness. Due to the efforts of the El Paso County Vaccine Consortium, it’s never been easier to get vaccinated in our community. With nearly 30 vaccine providers and more than 100 locations, getting a vaccine is quick, easy and convenient. To reduce barriers to getting vaccinated, Lyft continues to offer free rides for El Paso County residents to and from vaccine appointments until June 30. Residents can claim their code by calling 2-1-1. After receiving the code, they will be able to request a driver and be taken to the nearest clinic. To learn about more free transportation to vaccine appointments in our community, call 719-600-2221.
