10 large-scale vaccination sites for omicron booster shots opening in Colorado

Anyone 12 and older who has completed a primary COVID vaccination series can get an omicron booster dose, the state health department said.

DENVER — Colorado is opening 10 large-scale community vaccination sites distributing booster shots that protect against the newest subvariants of omicron.

Two sites opened Thursday, and eight more will open across the state over the next week to distribute the newly approved Pfizer and Moderna omicron vaccines, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) said.

CDPHE said anyone 12 and older who has completed a primary COVID vaccination series can get an omicron booster dose, including anyone who has already received any number of previous booster doses. CDPHE said anyone who wants an omicron booster shot should wait at least two months after getting any previous COVID vaccine.

The vaccination sites are also offering primary vaccine doses for anyone six months or older, as well as third doses for children ages 5 to 11. 

Novavax, another type of COVID vaccine, is also available for anyone 12 or older who has not already been vaccinated.

The new sites have the capacity to administer 4,250 doses daily.

“Just like the virus has evolved, so has the vaccine. Getting this latest vaccine will give you targeted protection from the COVID-19 variants circulating in Colorado right now,” said Scott Bookman, COVID-19 Incident Commander. “In addition to local pharmacies and health care providers, Coloradans will now be able to visit convenient community vaccination sites all over the state to get the best protection for the fall and winter.”

More information on scheduling a vaccination appointment at a community site can be found on the state's website.

Information on other COVID-19 vaccine providers can also be found on the state's website.
