San Juan Basin Public Health urges parents to start the COVID-19 vaccine series for their adolescents in order to be fully vaccinated for the 2021-22 school year.
Students in Ignacio must start their vaccine series by Monday, to have full protection by the start of the school year. Archuleta County kids should be vaccinated by no later than Aug. 3. Bayfield and Durango schools start in less than five weeks, so parents should vaccinate eligible adolescents right away.
Statewide, the delta variant is circulating widely. It is now the dominant strain in Colorado, accounting for 90% of all random positive COVID-19 tests that are sequenced in the state.
