COVID-19 Vaccine Availability & Prioritization

Colorado will continue to receive a limited supply of the first available vaccines from both Pfizer and Moderna. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has oversight of the distribution of all COVID-19 vaccine to local communities.


Phase 1A

  • Focus on hospital and outpatient healthcare workers, and residents and staff of skill nursing facilities, long-term care facilities, and assisted living facilities.
  • Residents and staff of care facilities will be vaccinated through the Pharmacy Partnership for the Long-term Care Program.

Phase 1B

This Phase focuses on moderate-risk healthcare workers, first responders, other frontline workers, and those aged 70 years or older.

  • First responders: This phase is complete. Any first responder still needing a vaccine should contact their employer.
  • Moderate-risk healthcare providers: The signup for this phase is complete. Please complete the notification sign-up and select “healthcare provider.”
  • All others: Vaccination locations and availability for all other community members who fit in Phase 1B, including older adults, will be announced via social media and local news. There is no list but residents may sign up to be notified when vaccine is available for their group.

Phases II and III

COVID-19 vaccine will be made available:

  • From pharmacies through a federal contract with 12 national pharmacy chains
  • Regular health care provider offices

There is no list or required sign-up to receive the vaccine for non-healthcare workers. When and where to get the vaccine will be widely advertised when it is available to residents who fit in Phases II or III and residents may sign up to be notified when vaccine is available for their group.

About the COVID-19 Vaccines

Inclusion of Family/Household in Vaccination

Because the vaccine has been prioritized to protect individuals who may be exposed through necessary interactions with coworkers and the public, the vaccine isn’t available to family of critical or essential workers.

General Vaccine Availability

Vaccine will likely be available to the general public in mid-2021. It will be provided through local health care provider offices and by 12 national pharmacy chains. The community will be notified via news and social media when it becomes available.

Vaccination Cost

While the cost of vaccine is free, many providers will be charging for the administration of the vaccine. Agencies may charge insurance for a set priced administration fee of approximately $23, and agencies providing vaccination for uninsured individuals will be compensated by the US Department of Health and Human Services.
