City of Boulder hosting 2 COVID-19 vaccination clinics at library, but without the gift cards

The clinics are on Sunday and Monday at the Boulder Public Library Main Branch.

BOULDER, Colo. — The City of Boulder is still planning to host COVID-19 vaccination clinics Sunday and Monday, but it is no longer offering the $100 gift cards that were previously announced.

The city said in a release distributed Friday that about 200 gift cards would be given out to anyone who received a vaccine dose, but 9NEWS has since learned from the city that will not be the case. It's not clear why those plans changed.

The two free vaccine clinics are being held at the Boulder Public Library Main Branch at 1001 Arapahoe Ave. Here are the exact times:

  • Sunday, July 18, from noon to 5 p.m.
  • Monday, July 19, from 2 to 7 p.m.

The city said parking at the library would be limited due to the Boulder Creek Festival. The nearest free parking garage is at 10th and Walmart streets and is free on the weekends.

Like all other vaccine clinics, the shots are free and no insurance, identification or pre-registration is required. Those who prefer a designated time can reserve one here.

Both the one-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine and the two-dose Pfizer option are available.

Everyone 12 and older are now eligible for a vaccine. There has been an increased push for as many people to get vaccinated as possible due to the influx in COVID-19 cases attributed to the delta variant, which scientists have said is more transmissible.
