Please click the COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Form button to complete a COVID-19 Vaccine Interest form. You will then be contacted directly when the vaccine becomes available to your occupation/age group. You only need to complete the form once to be added to the notification list.
If you need assistance completing the form, call 720.887.2288 Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
When will the vaccine be available?
Please remember, while vaccination will happen as fast as possible, vaccinating everyone will take time. Your opportunity is coming!
The rate at which Coloradans 70+ will be vaccinated depends on the federal supply of the vaccine. As Broomfield receives more supply, you will be informed along the way. Please check out Vaccine Dashboard to track Broomfield’s progress in this critical step to stop the COVID-19 pandemic.
A phased-approach is being developed to distribute the vaccine. The distribution plan and timing is subject to the quantity of vaccine that is allocated to Colorado, and then to the City and County of Broomfield.
Colorado’s distribution plan, including the phases, is based on federal guidelines and may change as health officials determine the most effective, ethical, and fair way to distribute the vaccine. Children and pregnant women are not included in any draft phase because no vaccine trials are currently being tested in pregnant women and only one is being tested in children 12 years and older.
How safe and effective is the vaccine?
Vaccines undergo a rigorous scientific process, which requires three phases of clinical trials before they can be submitted to the FDA for approval. In some instances, the FDA may issue an Emergency Use Authorization to allow an investigational vaccine to be available to the general public. Effectiveness varies when it comes to routine vaccines, such as the flu, and will likely vary with COVID-19 vaccines. For example, the overall effectiveness of the 2019-2020 flu vaccine was 45% and the protection lasts about 6 months. Comparatively, two doses of measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine is 97% effective against measles and provides lifelong protection.
If you have received the vaccine, you can report any adverse side effects through the CDC's V-safe After Vaccination Health Checker.
Which vaccines do we have in Colorado?
Colorado currently has the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The FDA independently reviews the information from these tests to make sure the vaccine is safe and works well, and then decides whether the vaccine can be licensed and made available to the public.

How much will it cost?
Vaccine providers will not be allowed to charge individuals for the vaccine. Providers will also not be allowed to turn someone away because of their inability to pay or medical coverage status.
Most public and private insurance companies will cover any administration fees so there is no cost to get vaccinated. If this is not the case, or if someone does not have health insurance, providers may seek reimbursement through the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund.
Where can I get a vaccine?
So far, more than 1,200 facilities in Colorado have expressed interest in being a COVID-19 vaccine provider when one becomes available. At this time, local pharmacies and health care providers are not vaccinating the general public.
Participating Walgreens and CVS pharmacies will receive a portion of the state’s vaccine allocation to administer onsite in long-term care facilities through the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-term Care Program. These pharmacies will take the vaccines to the long-term care facilities, and administer them. View a list of facilities receiving the first two shipments of COVID-19 vaccines to be distributed to frontline health care workers.
More information on where to get vaccinated will be shared as it becomes available.
Don't wait for a vaccine to stop the spread.
Depending on the vaccine, full protection against COVID-19 could take 2-3 months after the vaccine is administered so continue to follow public health guidance now and in the months ahead.
