Three planned mobile vaccination clinics hosted by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment will be in the Crowley/Otero county area this weekend, and there are still many available vaccines.

The first of three mobile clinics opened Friday in Crowley County. The vaccines are being administered on a first-come, first-served basis, but not many people have taken the opportunity to get one as of Friday morning, Alex Hutchins of the state health department said.

"Anybody over the age of 16 can walk onto the bus and get a vaccination," Hutchins said.
