The effort to distribute COVID-19 vaccines is underway in Colorado and across the United States.

After a slow start, the federal government is working to increase the supply of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, and states are working to become more efficient in administering them. Gov. Jared Polis (D-Colorado) announced this week that all Colorado residents will be eligible to receive a vaccine on Friday, April 2. That only includes those age 16 and older as the vaccines have not yet been approved for anyone younger. Those between 16 and 18 can only get the Pfizer vaccine.

9NEWS has received hundreds of emails in recent weeks from Coloradans unsure of the process for scheduling an appointment, as well as what happens once they have gotten their shot.

Here's a guide on how to know whether you're eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, where to get an appointment, what to do next and when life could return to normal.
