PLEASE NOTE: An appointment is required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and walk-ins cannot be accommodated.
COVID-19 Vaccination in Colorado
In Colorado, we are continuing to vaccinate our associates, providers, first responders, aligned and affiliated healthcare providers and their staff, as well as individuals aged 70 and older, consistent with current state vaccine eligibility criteria.
As of Monday, February 8, we expanded vaccine eligibility aligned with state guidelines to Colorado’s Phase 1B.2, which includes Coloradans ages 65-69, Prek-12 educators, child care workers in licensed child care programs and continuity of State government. More information and details on vaccination tiers and who is eligible for vaccination in each phase can be found on the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s website.
We are working hard to vaccinate as many members of our communities as possible as quickly as possible. The number of people who can be vaccinated will depend on the amount of vaccine available.
We are pleased to have received an enthusiastic response from individuals eligible for vaccination, and we are working to accommodate those requests through appointments as quickly as we can. An appointment is required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and walk-ins cannot be accommodated.
We are in the process of notifying SCL Health patients who are eligible for vaccination based on Colorado state guidelines. Patients who are eligible for vaccination have two options for scheduling:
If you are not an SCL Health patient, you may enter your information in the Vaccine Notification Sign Up form to be notified when an appointment is available for you. Appointments will only be available for individuals who are eligible for vaccination based on state guidelines, and outreach will be randomized and equitable. Please only fill out the form once, as that is all that is needed to get you on our notification list.
The number of appointments available will depend on the amount of vaccine we receive, and it may take several weeks to work through each phase of vaccination eligibility. Vaccine supply is managed by our partners at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and we are in constant communication with them to understand how much vaccine we can anticipate each week, and open up vaccination appointments accordingly. We appreciate your patience as we work to schedule individuals as quickly as possible.
Additional updates may be available on the SCL Health Colorado Vaccine Information Line at 1-833-762-0141.
The Mesa County Public Health Department is coordinating the rollout of vaccination eligibility in Western Colorado per state guidelines. If you are an individual in a group that is currently eligible for vaccination, please fill out the Mesa County COVID-19 Vaccine Interest form, and someone from the Mesa County Public Health Department will contact you.
