If you've been waiting for your chance to get the COVID-19 vaccine here in Mesa County is sounds like your wait is finally over. As we are hearing from KKCO that the general public is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, this means anyone who is a Colorado citizen and over the age of 16-years-old can get registered for the shot. This officially puts us in what is being called Phase 2, and it's started much earlier than many people expected.

Colorado is only the fourth state to open vaccine registration for all residents behind Alaska, Connecticut, and Mississippi who started these same efforts last week. But Mesa County is the first county in Colorado to open up vaccination availability to any resident within the state.

This means that the Grand Junction Convention Center will now get double the amount of vaccines, which means they could start injecting 6,000 doses of the vaccine each day.
