DENVER (KDVR) — It’s been almost five months since the first COVID-19 vaccine was approved for use, and in that time 63% of Denver residents have received at least one dose.

Forty-five percent of residents 16 years old and older have gotten both doses.

“The current level of vaccine distribution, as well as the rate of vaccination in our community, is a good sign that our recovery is gaining momentum. There’s still a lot of work to be done and thousands more people to get vaccinated. We’re winning, but the game isn’t over,” Mayor Michael Hancock said in a tweet on Thursday.

  • Southwest Denver: JFK High School
  • Northeast Denver: Martin Luther King, Jr. Rec Center
