Gov. Polis, in Partnership with Denver County and TrueCare24, Launches Community Vaccination Site at Ball Arena
Individuals can register now for vaccine appointments
DENVER - Today Governor Polis, in partnership with provider TrueCare24, launched the State Community Vaccination Site at the Ball Arena in Denver. On Thursday, April 1, as part of his Vaccines for All effort, the Governor will be launching the State Community Vaccination Site at the Ball Arena in Denver. The site will be a drive-through site and will start by providing just over 1,000 vaccines per day, with the ability to scale to 6,000 vaccinations per day once there is enough vaccine supply. All vaccines are free with no co-pay.
“Today I’m thrilled to launch the final of six State Community Vaccination Sites here at the Ball Arena,” said Governor Jared Polis. “Once at full capacity, these sites will be able to vaccinate tens of thousands of Coloradans each week, playing a critical role as eligibility opens up to everyone 16 and older. The light at the end of that tunnel continues getting brighter, and if everyone gets vaccinated when it is their turn, then Colorado will be able to recover stronger, and more quickly.”
The drive-through clinic will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Individuals who are eligible to receive the vaccine can register here. Starting tomorrow, Friday, April 2, all Coloradans 16 and older will be eligible to receive the vaccine.
“I want to thank Gov. Polis and the State for their work to set up this mass vaccination site here in Denver. The more vaccines we can get into more people’s arms as quickly as we can, the sooner we can put this pandemic behind us. This site at Ball Arena will mean thousands of vaccines getting into the arms of Coloradans, and will be key to helping all of us move from rescue to recovery,” said Mayor Michael Hancock.
“We’re very excited to be an authorized full-service vaccinator for Colorado,” says Leo Popov, Co-founder of TrueCare24. “Ball Arena is one of the six Community Vaccination Sites to support the state's goal to provide vaccines for all. TrueCare24 is a nationwide Health & Wellness platform for families and businesses.”
The Polis-Primavera administration is partnering with providers and local communities to stand up community vaccination sites to ensure the COVID-19 vaccine is administered equitably and efficiently as vaccine eligibility expands. In addition to the site being launched at Ball Arena, the State has already launched five other sites.
