Prowers County Free Legal Clinic

The Next Prowers County Free Legal clinic has been scheduled for Wednesday February 3rd from 2-5pm. All Virtual Pro Se Clinics are being held as scheduled. Now, instead of clinic patrons coming to the local public library, Lamar Public Library staff will schedule all appointments. Free Legal Clinic Participants are encouraged to provide a reliable phone number, so the volunteer attorney can call the clinic patron's telephone during scheduled clinic hours. Contact the Lamar Public Library at 336-4632 to be added to the sign-up sheet as space is limited.

Colorado COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

Colorado state health officials have outlined ways to ensure the COVID-19 vaccine is distributed fairly across the state populations. Jill Ryan for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment says a person's immigration status will not prevent them from getting access to the treatment. CDPHE is also launching campaigns to help reduce fears among populations, and will provide pop-up clinics in spots that lack access to medical facilities.
