Over 2 Million Coloradans Have Been Fully Vaccinated
As of Thursday, more than 2 million people in the state of Colorado have been fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus according to KDVR.
The New release came from Colorado's Governor, Jared Polis. There are approximately 4.7 million Coloradans over the age of 16 and eligible for the vaccine. With over 2 million being fully vaccinated, this means that 43 percent of the eligible population of Colorado is now fully vaccinated and 57 percent have at least some level of protection against the COVID-19 virus.
Governor Jared Polis said, "I want to congratulate every Coloradan who has received their vaccine. Not only are you protecting yourself, but you are powering the Colorado comeback and energizing our economy".
