Flu and Omicron COVID-19 Vaccine Booster clinics available!


The brand of Omicron (Bivalent) COVID-19 vaccine offered is based on availability. You may not get the brand you requested. Both Moderna and Pfizer effectively protect you from COVID-19. CDC recommends getting the first dose available to you, regardless of brand. There is no preference of one brand over another. Coloradans aged 12 through 17 years will get Pfizer’s omicron dose at their vaccine appointment, as it is the only omicron vaccine product authorized for this age group.

***If you only want a flu shot and not a COVID-19 booster, please use the same registration form but check the box for “Additional Dose” on Page 3 and choose "Flu- Live/Intranasal"  on Page 5. ***

Know Your COVID-19 Community Level

COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area. 

🟢people who live in green counties with low Covid levels do not need to wear masks. 
🟡people who are at high risk and live in yellow counties where there’s a medium Covid level should consult with their doctor about wearing a mask. 
🔴people who live in red counties with high Covid levels should wear masks in indoor public places and schools.
