FAQs: Getting Your COVID-19 Vaccine at Children’s Hospital Colorado

Our role in Colorado’s vaccine rollout

In December 2020, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) designated Children’s Hospital Colorado as a partner and distribution hub for the first COVID-19 vaccines. Children’s Colorado is assisting the State by delivering COVID-19 vaccines to multiple locations and vaccinating priority groups, including first responders, pediatric community healthcare providers, school nurses and teachers, at our hospitals in Aurora and Colorado Springs. Children’s Colorado’s role as a partner for targeted vaccine distribution is distinct and different from other organizations who are public providers of the vaccine for eligible community members.

As of February 23, Children's Colorado has helped vaccinate more than 22,000 Coloradans against COVID-19. We look forward to vaccinating many more, including front-line, school-based teams. Please read the following frequently asked questions to learn more about receiving your vaccination at Children’s Colorado.
