Vaccine Update from the Health Center at Auraria | March 4, 2021

CityHawks,

Through our collaboration with Denver Health and COVIDCheck Colorado, The Health Center at Auraria is pleased to share that we will be receiving 800 doses of the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine to randomly distribute to eligible members of the Auraria Campus community.

This weekend, 800 campus employees and students who qualify for Phase 1 B.2 and Phase 1 B.3 (primarily those age 60 and older), and who are eligible to receive the vaccine, will receive an email directly from Primary Bio with instructions on registering and selecting an appointment slot. Please check your spam folder to ensure an invitation isn't overlooked or misplaced. You must complete the registration process and have a confirmed appointment slot to receive a vaccination. Scheduling is on a first-come, first-served basis for those who have received and confirmed the invitation. No walk-up or drop-ins will be allowed.

There will be additional vaccination opportunities in the coming weeks. Please continue to be patient as our campus Point of Dispensing (POD) begins to receive its vaccine supply. The Auraria Campus community is encouraged to get their COVID-19 vaccine at their first opportunity. If you have vaccine access through your healthcare provider or another community option, we encourage you to take the earliest opportunity to be vaccinated.

UPDATE FOR THE WEEK OF MARCH 1, 2021

VACCINE AVAILABILITY

We continue to await word from state and federal health officials about when additional vaccines will be available for our Point of Dispensing (POD) site at the Fifth Street Garage.

CURRENT ELIGIBILITY | PHASE 1B.1 and 1B.2

  • We are required to follow the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) phase categories for vaccine prioritization.
  • CCD, MSU Denver, CU Denver, and AHEC have compiled lists of those who qualify for Phase 1B.1 and 1B.2.
  • When vaccines become available, random selection from each of the lists will occur, and individuals will receive an email invitation from Primary Bio with instructions for scheduling a vaccine appointment. We expect this to happen in the next several weeks.
  • Once we have supply, only campus constituents will be eligible for the vaccine.
