A committee will be working on setting timelines and developing distribution plans in preparation for vaccine availability for CU students, faculty and staff. The state of Colorado has developed a phased approach to vaccine distribution.

An executive committee has been formed to oversee this process and the project will be managed by CU Boulder’s Pandemic Response Office.

  • Subcommittees will focus on operations and logistics, policy and guidance, safety and security, and communications.
  • The committees will work to provide recommendations and guidance related to future vaccine distribution for the CU Boulder community. All of this will be done in coordination with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Boulder County Public Health (BCPH).
  • Updates on the committee’s work will be shared as new information becomes available.
  • Information is available from the state about COVID-19 vaccines and the status of their availability in Colorado.
