COVID-19 Vaccine

DENVER (KDVR) — On Friday, all Coloradans who are 16-years-old or above are eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine.  Gov. Jared Polis says he anticipates that anyone who wants the vaccine will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine before the end of May.

State officials say any Coloradans who is at least 16-years-old is now eligible to the Pfizer vaccine; any Coloradans over 18-years-old can receive either the Modern or the Johnson and Johnson and vaccine.

Health experts estimate about 70 percent of people in our state who are 60 or older are now vaccinated.  Recently, the state launched five mass community vaccination sites.  According to state officials, depending on supply, each site could give a maximum of 6,000 doses each day, six days a week.
