It's pretty clear now that if you want the COVID-19 vaccine and you're over the age of 16 and a resident of Colorado you can make it happen. And according to KREX, Mesa County Public Health is now making it easier than ever as their hours of operation at the Community Vaccination Site at the Grand Junction Convention Center are expanding for this Saturday for a special event. They will now be offering Saturday night appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine here in Mesa County.

The vaccination site at the Grand Junction Convention Center is normally open Monday through Friday from 9 am until 4 pm, but now they are adding an additional 500 appointments on Saturday as they stay open until 7 pm. Which will obviously make it much easier for those who a busy weekend planned but still want to get signed up to receive the vaccine.

If These Saturday Night Appointments Fill Quickly It Could Become a Regular Event

Mesa County Public Health wants to help as much as possible to continue to see the number of people vaccinated rise especially here in our county. With over 72,000 total doses administered as of this morning, it would make sense to see these numbers increase quickly with hours expanding.
