Colorado Gov. Jared Polis is expected to provide an update on the state’s COVID-19 response about 12:15 p.m. Friday. 

The Coloradoan will share the livestream of the news conference here when it begins. 

The state hopes to offer COVID-19 vaccines to all those who qualify in Phase 1A — which includes frontline health care workers and long-term care facility staff and residents — by Jan. 15, Polis said in a Wednesday news conference.

The state has administered 129,552 vaccine doses of the 234,000 it has received as of Wednesday, Polis said. 

Phase 1B of its vaccination plan encompasses an estimated 1.3 million people, including more health care workers, teachers, first responders, certain essential workers and Coloradans 70 years old and older.
