COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution


Daniel Lane, Writer

Colorado’s governor expects that the initial supply of COVID-19 vaccines will be minimal for several months. This means that a vaccine will not be immediately available to everyone who wants one. To be as fair and efficient with distribution as possible, the state has developed a phased approach to vaccine distribution to save lives and end the crisis that has been brought on by the pandemic as quickly as possible. By vaccinating people who are most likely to get COVID-19 first, we can keep more Coloradans safe.

Colorado is currently vaccinating eligible people for Phase 1A and Phase 1B.1. Coloradans in Phase 1B.2 are currently eligible as of February 8. After all of Phase 1 is complete, we will proceed with Phases 2 and 3. We are estimating 452,000 total vaccines allocated to Colorado between January 25 and March 1st.
