Gov. Polis Partners with Community-Based Organizations, Hosts Clinics as Part of Vaccines for All Plan

Friday, May 28, 2021

DENVER - As part of Governor Polis’ Vaccines for All efforts, the State of Colorado is allocating vaccines to community-based organizations. All of these clinics focus on vaccinating underserved Coloradans and span a variety of diverse communities. 

“These are some of the many community partners who have helped us to distribute the vaccine during the past few months,” said Governor Jared Polis. “I want to thank them for their hard work delivering this lifesaving vaccine to Coloradans across our state.”

We encourage everyone interested in an appointment to check availability with each organization and schedule an appointment in advance.
