Colorado's Vaccine Distribution Plan
Governor Polis announced that starting December 30, people 70 years old and older are currently eligible for COVID-19 vaccine. The Governor also stated that "Any Coloradan 70 and up can now legally receive the vaccine...This will take about 4-5 weeks."
While this news is very exciting, vaccinations are very dependent on vaccine availability. Some hospitals and other providers in the Tri-County Jurisdiction have begun phase 1B vaccinations, but not every provider has moved into phase 1B. Since limited amounts of the vaccine come in weekly, and even smaller amounts are distributed throughout the state, not every provider has all the vaccine needed to vaccinate everyone 70 and older.
Where can individuals 70 and older get a vaccine?
Find where to get a vaccine on the state's vaccine page.
Our clinics are unable to provide vaccines to community members who are 70 or older right now. Keep checking this website frequently for more information on where and when you can get vaccinated.
Getting vaccinated is one of many steps you can take to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Protection from COVID-19 is critically important because for some people, the COVID-19 virus can cause severe illness or death.
