KOAA News and Bill Folsom report on the UCHealth Mobile Clinic that delivered the COVID-19 Vaccine to Sunny Vista on Wednesday. The clinic has a plan to get the vaccine to people who may not be able to get to a health provider at their permanent locations. This is their first of what they are calling their Mobile Vaccination Clinic.
" I'm so excited, I haven't stopped talking since I heard about it yesterday," said resident Rosalie Lane.
UCHealth is also starting vaccine for people over 70 at some of its non-mobile locations. This happens as the vaccine supplies are available. People are required to sign up on-line through My Health Connection. Those joining the on-line list get an electronic notification when they meet the criteria and a dose is available.

Sunny Vista was founded in 1911 by Marjory Palmer the daughter of General Palmer who is the founder of Colorado Springs. She went door to door collecting dimes and nickels to start Sunnygrass Sanitorium for people suffering from tuberculosis.
After WWII we had the invention of penicillin and there was no longer as much of a need for these sanitoriums.
