DENVER (KDVR) — Kaiser Permanente announced that 16 office locations will be set up to distribute approximately 19,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses Feb. 13 and 14.
The state’s largest nonprofit health plan is setting up the mass vaccinations along the Front Range for Colorado educators, childcare workers, and Coloradans age 70 and up.
Two locations will be set up this weekend specifically with the goal of vaccinating 6,000 older Coloradans with their first dose.
Starting this weekend and continuing for the next three weeks, Kaiser Permanente says it plans to vaccinate a total of more than 50,000 educators and workers at licensed childcare programs.
“Kaiser Permanente is proud to support the State’s efforts to vaccinate as many Coloradans as possible. Focusing on teachers and at-risk populations is an important step toward ending this pandemic,” Mike Ramseier, Kaiser Permanente regional president in Colorado said. “We’ve mobilized a massive effort to deliver these vaccines and I want to thank all of our staff and physicians who are stepping up to help during this challenging time.”
