Colorado tests COVID-19 vaccine delivery with a trial run to Vail Health
VAIL — Vail Health received a special delivery on Tuesday as the state department of public health readies for the arrival of a COVID-19 vaccine in Colorado.
In an official drill, a convoy of state agencies simulated what the vaccine’s arrival will look like in Vail.
