Vaccine Supply

Vaccine allocations to Boulder County improved this week; across all vaccine providers in the county, we received about 7,000 doses. . Overall, we have capability with all vaccine providers  to provide about 22,000 vaccinations each week, so we will be able to ramp up as soon as more vaccine is available. Residents currently eligible and still waiting for vaccine and those who will be eligible on February 8 is about 40,000 individuals.

Vaccination Locations

While the supply of the vaccine is still very limited, the vaccine providers in Boulder County listed at www.boco.org/COVIDVaccines encourage anyone who is eligible now or next week to sign up with your medical provider (such as Kaiser Permanente) or a hospital affiliated with your medical provider. Please do not add yourself to multiple lists.

We understand that registration on some of the vaccine provider websites can be complicated for some residents. We encourage you to assist friends and relatives who may need a little extra help registering online. Individuals can also contact the vaccine provider (e.g. hospital, clinic, pharmacy) directly by calling their main number or calling the Boulder County Public Health call center at 720-776-0822.
