STATEWIDE (Oct. 29, 2021) — The state of Colorado continues to make COVID-19 vaccines accessible, with more than 100 mobile vaccine clinics and local community vaccination events available across the state over the coming week. Many clinics, including all vaccine buses, are now offering flu vaccines. 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. A third can be either an additional dose or a booster dose. Booster doses are an important part of maintaining maximum protection against the virus that causes COVID-19, especially for people who are at high risk from COVID-19.  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. Experts recommend receiving an additional or booster dose as soon you are eligible to help protect yourself, your family, and your community. Find out if you are eligible for an additional or booster dose.

CDPHE also encourages parents and guardians to begin making a plan for getting their 5-11-year-old children vaccinated against COVID-19. The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is scheduled to meet Nov. 2 to discuss this authorization, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will then make a final recommendation. The state of Colorado is partnering with organizations to make vaccines for 5-11-year-olds easily accessible, and the first recurring clinics are scheduled to open Nov. 5, pending CDC authorization.

Children’s Hospital is planning to host clinics for 5-11-year-olds at the following locations beginning Nov. 5, pending CDC authorization:

  • Children's Hospital Anschutz: Fri/Sat/Sun
  • Children's Hospital Colorado Springs: Fri/Sat/Sun
  • Children's Hospital Broomfield: Various dates (3x/week) 
  • Children's Hospital Highlands Ranch: Various dates (3x/week) 

Vaccines are free, and no identification, proof of residency, or insurance is required.

The list below includes vaccine clinics from October 30 to November 5. These clinics are in addition to the more than 1700 COVID-19 vaccine providers across the state.
