DENVER — National Jewish Health (NJH) will host an appointment-only vaccine event on Feb. 27 for people age 70 and older.
The event will take place from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at 1400 Jackson St, Denver, CO, 80206.
This event is only for those 70 and older. Schedule an appointment by visiting their Coronavirus Information and Resources page.
NJH will be using the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at the event to vaccinate more than 2,200 people.
The event is in accordance with the governor's goal to vaccinate 70% of 70-year-olds and up by the end of February. At a future date, NJH will offer additional vaccination appointments based on eligibility and the availability of vaccines.
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.
Two vaccines are currently authorized for emergency use in the U.S.
Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines use mRNA technology, meaning they do not contain any active virus. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) says it does not recommend one vaccine over the other
