The Ranch Events Complex in Larimer County (5280 Arena Cir, Loveland, CO 80538) was announced as a vaccination site on March 25. The site, which is also open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., is being run by FEMA. You can register for an online appointment here or by calling 970-498-5500.

State Mass Vaccine site

Colorado drive-up mass vaccination site opens at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

According to the governor’s office, the Commerce City vaccination site will be able to provide 2,000 doses a day, but eventually ramp up to 6,000 a day if supply allows. On March 22, it provided just 500 doses of the Moderna vaccine as a trial run of sorts.

Those who receive a shot at the Community Vaccination Site will need to return to the same location 28 days later for their second dose.

Centura Health is operating the Commerce City site, along with two others.

Below is the operating hours for the three Centura Health-run sites:

  • Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City: Sunday – Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs: Friday – Monday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Colorado State Fairgrounds in Pueblo: Friday – Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Polis' office announced FEMA would be taking over the location in Pueblo starting April 14, and that the agency will be able to increase daily vaccinations from 1,750 per day to 3,000. Once FEMA takes over, the site will operate seven days a week and open at 7 a.m. each day. It will operate the site for eight weeks.

“And this isn’t only about quantity, but also equity. With this transition, we’ll be able to increase supply for the site, and reach more folks in many of our rural and agricultural communities, making it quick, easy, and convenient for them to get vaccinated. Getting the vaccine isn’t just about protecting yourself, but your loved ones and your community, so make sure to schedule your appointment as soon as you’re able.”

The governor's office pointed out that southern Colorado has been hit hard by the pandemic, and that nearly one out of five people in Pueblo live below the poverty line.

The Grand Junction Convention Center in Mesa County is also serving as a Community Vaccination Site. Operated by Mesa County Public Health, it will be open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Register for a vaccine at this location here.

To date, over a million Coloradans have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

 Higher-risk groups have been vaccinated at a high rate. According to officials with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), over 80% of Coloradans 65+ have received at least one vaccine dose.

On Friday, April 2, all Coloradans ages 16 and up will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccines.
