All individuals 16 and over are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Colorado. Here are some tips for finding and scheduling a vaccine appointment.
Check multiple locations
While CU Boulder students, staff and faculty can sign up for the vaccine through CU Boulder, we receive a limited supply of vaccine doses so it’s best to also check other options. We recommend taking advantage of your first opportunity.
Plan for your second appointment
If you will be getting a two-dose vaccine, it’s helpful to consider the timing of when you will be due for your second dose appointment:
- The Pfizer vaccine is two doses given approximately 21 days apart.
- The Moderna vaccine is two doses given approximately 28 days apart.
Be mindful of your schedule after your appointment
Many people do not experience side effects after vaccination. If you do experience side effects, they are usually mild and go away within a few days. Consider any plans you may have the day or two after your vaccine appointment in case you experience common side effects. Learn more about vaccine side effects.
