City of Boulder announces free COVID-19 vaccine clinics at the Boulder Public Library
All are welcome on Sundays and Mondays from July 11 through Aug. 16.
The City of Boulder, in partnership with the state’s COVID-19 “Vaccine for All” vaccination clinic program, is offering a series of vaccine clinics in Boulder this summer. The clinics are 100% free and no insurance, ID or pre-registration is required, however those that prefer a designated time slot are able to reserve one in advance. Spanish language interpreters will be available at each clinic.
Clinics will be held on Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. and on Mondays from 2 to 7 p.m., from Sunday, July 11 through Monday, Aug. 16. Clinics will be located at the Main Boulder Public Library, 1001 Arapahoe Ave., in the Canyon Gallery. Those attending the clinics should plan to enter the north side of the building near Canyon Boulevard.
Visitors to the clinic can choose between two vaccine types, the one-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine and the two-dose Pfizer vaccine. Individuals receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the vaccine. Those who opt for Pfizer are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the second dose in the two-dose series.
For those receiving the Pfizer vaccine, the clinic will offer both first and second doses. Those who have already received the first dose should be aware of the recommended three-week window between the first and second Pfizer dose and should plan to bring their vaccination card with them to the clinic. Information about additional locations in Boulder where community members can receive a second Pfizer dose will also be available. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that both doses of the vaccine series be completed with the same product.
All community members are invited to these clinics, including those with teenagers and families with children ages 12+. COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and help protect people from getting seriously sick. As of July 6, almost 224,000 Boulder County residents (77.3% of the eligible population) have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose and over 207,000 (71.6% of the eligible population), have received a full course of the vaccine.
“We have been able to offer 100s of community members convenient access to the vaccine,” said Housing and Human Services Department Manager Elizabeth Crowe. “Our goal is to make the vaccine available to everyone that would like it, especially those experiencing challenges with access and scheduling around their busy lives.”
