Colorado Adds Additional COVID-19 Vaccine Community Sites Through Chapel Hills Mall and Pueblo Mall

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (KRDO) — In response to Colorado’s nationwide COVID-19 vaccination campaign, three additional COVID-19 community sites were added by Chapel Hills Mall, Pueblo Mall and Douglas County Fairgrounds. These new locations will help deliver additional doses throughout the southern Colorado area.

In the press release, all three Southern Colorado locations will begin offering increased capacity to 1,000 doses per day starting Saturday, Nov. 27 and every weekend from Friday to Sunday. People can schedule their appointment in advance and it is highly encouraged.

The Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE) says parents and guardians should plan to have their children vaccinated. Vaccines help prevent serious illness, hospitalizations and even death – among those who become infected. With the holidays just around the corner, children who get vaccinated will be able to participate in extracurricular activities, see family and friends, and there will be fewer interruptions for personal learning.

Stand-alone clinics such as mobile vaccine clinics provide pediatric vaccines for children ages five to 11. The state is updating a list of providers who administer Pfizer vaccines to children. In addition, COVID-19 vaccine clinics offer flu vaccines. People can get the COVID-19 vaccine and a flu vaccine in the same place, on the same day.

CDPHE encourages all Coloradans age 18 and older to receive the COVID-19 booster dose as soon as possible if it has been at least six months since they received the second Pfizer dose of Moderna. If a person has received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, they must wait at least two months.
