No appointment needed at Denver’s community vaccination sites. Here’s where you can get a shot.

Roughly half of Denver's population has gotten at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

DENVER — As part of an effort to continue to expand COVID-19 vaccine access to underserved populations, the city of Denver is no longer requiring appointments at its community vaccination sites.

The city said nearly one third of its population is fully immunized, and more than 50% of Denverites have received at least one dose of the vaccine. However, there is a gap between certain communities. According to the city, only 19% of Denver’s eligible Hispanic/Latinx population has been immunized.

Statewide, the supply of vaccine doses is beginning to outpace demand, even as health officials race to reach the 70-80% threshold of vaccinations that are required to achieve herd immunity. COVID-19 hospitalizations in Colorado are at the highest level they’ve been in months, and the state said this is driven by unvaccinated people under the age of 60.

During previous waves of the virus, most COVID-19 deaths involved people over 60.
