Sunday, January 24, 2021 one thousand senior citizens received their COVID-19 vaccination in the parking lot of Coors Field. It was the first mass vaccination event in Colorado and was a dress rehearsal for a larger event scheduled for this upcoming weekend. The event was a coordinated effort between UCHealth, the Colorado Rockies, the state, and the City and County of Denver. The organizers said that the event went smoothly because they required the participants to schedule an appointment time rather than doing a first come first served basis.
The event for this upcoming weekend will be held at Coors Field and will be over two days. Organizers are hoping to vaccinate over 10,000 people over the age of 70. If you are interested in signing up for the vaccine lottery, go to the UCHealth website: www.uchealth.org/covidvaccine
