COLORADO, USA — Patients who received a COVID-19 vaccine at two Colorado clinics are being asked to get vaccinated again after vaccine doses were not properly stored.
Up to 190 patients who received a COVID-19 vaccine between Feb. 3 and June 28, 2022, at the Wheat Ridge-based Colorado Family Clinic, at 4990 Kipling Street, and 594 patients who were vaccinated between Oct. 9, 2021, and April 24, 2022, at Denver-based Servicios de la Raza, at 3131 W. 14th Avenue, are being asked by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to get vaccinated again after the clinics failed to properly store vaccines.
CDPHE said there are no negative side effects or safety concerns of taking a COVID-19 vaccine that has not been properly stored; however, the vaccine may not offer protection against the virus.
Colorado Family Clinic received 190 doses of Pfizer vaccine but did not maintain the required temperature data, according to CDPHE.
CDPHE has terminated the clinic from participating in the COVID-19 Vaccination Program. The clinic permanently closed on June 28, 2022.
