State of Vail Health address: Teacher vaccines available Feb. 8, restaurant workers March 5
During the annual State of Vail Health event, held virtually this year, President and CEO Will Cook shared a message of optimism amid acknowledgment that coronavirus is here to stay. The opening of a large new space, along with early anticipation of the coronavirus threat, made Vail Health able to stay well within its limit of hospital beds during the 2020 pandemic. And while hospitalizations are dropping, the virus is here to stay, and the hospital will need to continue to stay focused on vaccine distribution for many years to come. Starting Feb. 8, anyone over 65, as well as all educators in Eagle County, will be eligible to receive a vaccine by signing up at EagleCountyCovid.org. In the future, Vail Health would like to get back to the other problems in the community, like behavioral health, and, in Cook’s words, “enhancing access to more affordable care.”
