The state is also holding vaccine clinics at locations across Colorado. Visit covid19.colorado.gov for a full list of upcoming clinics for children.
The state is also hosting more than 100 mobile vaccine clinics, many of which will also offer the flu vaccine in addition to COVID-19 vaccines.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) encourages Coloradans to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect themselves and their communities as we head into the fall and winter holiday season.
All clinic sites offer first, second, and third COVID-19 vaccine doses for adults. A third can be either an additional dose or a booster dose. Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 booster doses are now authorized for certain Coloradans, and additional doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are currently authorized for immunocompromised Coloradans.
