By the end of the week, 5,800 Eagle County residents will have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Eagle County is in Phase 1B of the state’s inoculation rollout, which includes first responders, health care workers with less direct contact with COVID-19 patients and those 70 and older.

To get the most protection from the virus, a second shot is required 3-4 weeks after the first shot. Here are some photos of Eagle County residents who were thrilled to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at Vail Health Hospital.
