People can visit the COVID vaccine bus in the Ball Arena parking lot just north of Chopper Circle and 9th Street to receive a vaccination. Vaccines are free, and no identification, proof of residency, or insurance is required.

The CDPHE encourages people 18 and older to get a booster dose as soon as possible if it has been at least six months since they got their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or at least two months since they got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the release said. All mobile vaccine clinics and many standalone clinics are offering pediatric Pfizer vaccines for children ages 5 to 11.

Vaccine clinics are being run statewide through Dec. 10, these clinics are in addition to the 1,700 vaccine providers across the state. To find the nearest vaccine clinic go online to: https://covid19.colorado.gov/vaccine.
