PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- According to the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office, the county's COVID-19 clinic at the Pueblo Mall is set to reopen on Thursday after a week long hiatus.
Last week, Pueblo Health Officials were forced to shut down the facility due to a shortage of vaccines. KRDO is told the Pueblo County Health Department received a decent shipment of vaccines on Tuesday that will allow the facility to reopen.
