DENVER - Today, as part of Governor Polis’ Vaccines for All efforts, the Governor will be launching the very first State Community Vaccination Site at the Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs. The contract to operate the site has been awarded to Centura Health. The site will be a drive-through site and it will start by providing 2,000 vaccines per day. The facility will be able to conduct 6,000 vaccinations per day once there is enough vaccine supply. All vaccines are free with no co-pay.

The drive-through clinic will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. a. Individuals who are eligible to receive the vaccine can register here or by calling 720-263-5737. Starting Friday, March 19, all Coloradans age 50 and older are eligible.
The Polis-Primavera administration is partnering with providers and local communities to stand up community vaccination sites to ensure the COVID-19 vaccine is administered equitably and efficiently as vaccine eligibility expands. In addition to the site being launched at the Broadmoor today, the State is launching another Community Vaccination Site in Mesa County at the Grand Junction Convention Center. There will be four other sites opening up in the coming days in Adams, Pueblo, Larimer & Denver Counties.

WHAT: Gov. Polis will stop by State Community Vaccination Site in Colorado Springs, operated in partnership with Centura Health. He will be available for press interviews.


WHERE: Broadmoor World Arena, 3185 Venetucci Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80906

WHEN: Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at 10:00 a.m.
