Extra doses of both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, which had previously been held as second doses, will now be used as first doses for Coloradans 70+. Health providers and pharmacies will be contacting more seniors to receive a COVID-19 vaccine now through Monday, Jan. 25. While vaccination will happen as fast as possible, vaccinating everyone will take time. Your opportunity is coming!
The state will backfill additional second doses from a future supply. The state will use “first doses” as “second doses” as needed to maintain the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation for the booster shot.
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 the new Broomfield.org/VaccineDashboard to track Broomfield’s progress in this critical step to stop the COVID-19 pandemic.
