Vaccines in Jefferson County
We are excited that JCPH has begun offering the vaccine in limited quantities to adults 70 and older at our clinic at the Arvada Fire Protection District Training Center, 6651 Indiana Street. This clinic is hosted with support from the Arvada Fire Protection District, Arvada Police Department and volunteers from organizations around the county. The vaccine will also continue to be available to those classified by CDPHE in Phase 1A and 1B.1. Vaccines will only be available to those who are in these phases, and only by appointment. Please sign up for an appointment at the JCPH COVID-19 Clinics webpage. (Note: This week, we are only administering second doses. Next week we will resume with offering first dose appointments; please check the website frequently as we will add those appointments when available).
In addition to the expanded vaccination efforts at JCPH, there are many others within Jeffco’s health and medical system who are working hard to vaccinate older adults, including hospitals, primary care providers and pharmacies. If you have been contacted by or have already scheduled a vaccine through one of these channels, please keep your appointment. Please continue to check with these other providers regularly, as vaccine availability will vary by site. Visit CDPHE’s website for a complete listing and sign-up links.
We’re glad to be able to expand vaccination efforts - as well as excited to hear about the Governor’s announcement that more Coloradans, including educators, licensed child care providers and adults 65+ are eligible to be vaccinated as supply allows - but we know this is a long road. For everyone who is waiting for their chance to get vaccinated, please know your turn will come. While you’re waiting, you can take comfort in knowing that our most at-risk and vulnerable populations are getting vaccinated in greater numbers every day, which will just get us, as a community, closer to recovery.
