January 13, 2021 Update:
On January 13th Governor Polis was joined by Peter Banko, CEO of Centura Health, Dr. Richard Zane, UCHealth's Chief Innovation Officer, and John Santistevan, President & CEO of Salud Family Health Centers to provide an update on the State’s goals to vaccinate Coloradans in Phases 1A and 1B.
The Governor reiterated that one of our main goals is to vaccinate 70% of Coloradans 70 years and older by February 28.
Equitable distribution of the vaccine was discussed and an outline of percentage of vaccine supply given to providers was presented:
- Hospitals: 50%
- Federally Qualified Health Partners: 20%
- Community Partners and Local Public Health Agencies: 20%
- Retail Pharmacies: 10%
Currently, 70,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses each week are arriving in Colorado from the federal government. It was reported however that this number can change based upon on what federal government can provide Colorado during a given week.
If you have been unable to access a vaccine, please email email@example.com.
