DENVER — The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CPDHE) announced a new hotline that people can call to get answers to their COVID-19 vaccine questions.
Beginning January 25, Coloradans can call 1-877-CO VAX CO (1-877-268-2926) and speak with call center staff who are trained to answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines in Colorado and questions about vaccine providers.
Until the end of January, the hotline will be available Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. On weekends, the hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In February, the hotline will transition to operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To start, 50 operators will be available to answer calls. “Staffing will expand as call volume requires,” CDPHE said in a news conference January 25.
The latest data from CDPHE show over 80,100 Coloradans have received both required doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.
More data on vaccines in Colorado are available here.
State officials say Colorado is nearly done with Phase 1A of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. Phase 1A includes vaccines for front line health care workers as well as staff and residents of skilled nursing facilities.
Phase 1B includes all Coloradans ages 70 and above and essential workers like teachers, grocers, and postal workers, to name a few groups.
Governor Polis has said the state hopes to vaccinate 70% of the 70 and up population by the end of February, and that the state is on track to meet that goal.
CDPHE recently created a web page where Coloradans 70 and up can find out where to register for their vaccinations. Below is an interactive map that shows which providers are administering the COVID-19 vaccine.
