Update

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommends that people whose immune systems are compromised moderately to severely should receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 at least 28 days after the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Read more. Other individuals may possibly begin receiving a COVID-19 booster shot as early the fall.

The lifesaving COVID-19 vaccine is now available to all Colorado residents 12 and older.

Important Note: LAHCDHD is pleased to announce the lifesaving COVID vaccine is now available for 12 to 15-year-olds. People age 12 to 17 are only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine and must have a signed parental consent form.

Let's protect our communities! Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is an effective way to stop people from getting really sick or dying from COVID-19. Being vaccinated means that you are protected from getting seriously ill. It may also reduce the chance that you could spread COVID-19 to others who are more vulnerable.

Let's get back to the things we love! Getting more people in our communities vaccinated will hopefully allow us to achieve widespread community immunity so we can get back to the things we love. The vaccines will help keep our businesses open and allow for our local economy to bounce back and will help maintain in-person learning in our schools.

See below for a list of vaccine providers and clinics, and get your lifesaving vaccine today!
