What's Your Vaccine Plan?

It's easy to get the COVID-19 Vaccine! 

Make an appointment! 

  • What do You Need to Know to Make an Appointment?:
    • Appointments are required at most, but not all, vaccine clinics. When you schedule your appointment for your first dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, your vaccine provider will schedule your second dose at the same time. You must complete both vaccines to be fully vaccinated!
    • You do not need insurance or a state-issued form of identification to receive a vaccine, and there is no cost to receive the vaccine. 
    • It's easier than ever to get an appointment. Many local pharmacies have available appointments and there are several community vaccination events taking place each week. Find your vaccination option at Broomfield.org/COVIDVacccine. 
    • All employees are entitled to paid sick leave to get the COVID-19 vaccine, no matter the size of the employer. Your employer cannot require you to get a vaccine outside of working hours.

Make a plan!

  • Side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine do not mean that you have COVID-19. Side effects can be more common with the second dose of the vaccine. 
  • All employees are entitled to paid sick leave if experiencing side effects from the COVID-19 Vaccine.

Make Your Community a Safer Place! 

  • Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine will help Broomfield reach recommended community vaccination levels. Get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you are able.
  • Some residents are not able to get the vaccine yet due to age or medical conditions. Getting vaccinated helps keep them safe!
  • Getting vaccinated will help businesses reopen and stay open, reducing the chance of hospitalizations due to severe COVID-19 infection. All three vaccines are safe and effective. 

Make Plans! 

  • The CDC states that fully vaccinated (remember, you are not fully vaccinated until two weeks after your final dose) people can:
    • Visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with other fully vaccinated people of any age 
    • Visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with one household of unvaccinated people who are not at risk for severe illness 
    • Travel domestically without a pre- or post-travel test 
    • Travel domestically without quarantining after travel 
    • Travel internationally without a pre-travel test depending on destination 
    • Travel internationally without quarantining after travel
