Gov. Polis Offers CU Boulder Students Additional Opportunity to Be Vaccinated Before Heading Home for the Summer

Colorado News

DENVER, Colo. — Today, in partnership with the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder), the state continued work to increase vaccination rates among young adults. The CU system has said that vaccination against COVID-19 will be required for the 2021 – 2022 school year.

“Students are lining up to get the lifesaving vaccine so that they can enjoy the full college experience. Safely. We’re working to make this as easy as possible and I want to thank CU Boulder for being a great partner,” said Governor Jared Polis.

“We’re pleased to be able to work with Governor Polis and his team to offer this resource to our students,” said CU Boulder Chancellor Phil DiStefano. “Vaccines are a critical tool in our efforts to combat the pandemic and allow our CU communities to benefit from the on-campus experience.”

One of the state’s mobile vaccine clinics is parking at Williams Village, offering shots of the Johnson and Johnson (Jannsen) one-dose vaccine. The State is providing both the vaccines and medical/vaccine logistics while CU Boulder is communicating to students, and offering food and giveaways to encourage student attendance. Plans exist to continue events like this into the summer as needed. 

The bus will operate from 10 am-4 pm and will provide about 240 doses to students. This is a walk-up clinic and students will just need to fill out a paper form to receive their shot.
