New COVID-19 vaccination appointments are available now on Wednesday, March 10 (second dose will be Wednesday, March 31) and Friday, March 12 (second dose will be Friday, April 2). Please only schedule yourself if you are able to make the second dose appointment.

Individuals must be eligible per the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment. This includes the new 1B.3 category: people age 60 and older, frontline essential workers, agricultural and grocery workers, and people 16 to 59 with two or more high risk conditions.

If you schedule yourself for an appointment and are not in an eligible population, you will be turned away. Also, due to the fragile nature of the vaccine we cannot hold your dose if you do not arrive on time for your appointment.  If you schedule your appointment and do not arrive on time, your appointment may be canceled and your dose given to another individual.
