Colorado COVID 19 vaccine phased distribution approach is below

The COVID 19 Vaccine distribution for Long Term Care staff in Colorado can be received via 3 Options:

1. Staff, including providers and medical directors can get vaccinated as part of the 1A phase at specific locations around the state (more details to follow)

2. Staff can get vaccinated at a facility that has chosen to become a COVID vaccine provider. Facilities can still enroll to be a provider if they can meet the requirements for storage, handling and reporting and must complete the application by 11/30/20. 

Requirements are here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/153Gz_ktHujMJi5ON5vULLXFemFQ6U84axJlD4gdLTJc/edit

Information to enroll as a COVID 19 vaccine provider is here: http://74.118.245.168/SyntropiCO/emrlogin.asp

3. Staff can be vaccinated later in the 1C phase with the residents at the facility (via CVS/Walgreens or their own pharmacy, which ever the facility has chosen)

IT is STRONGLY suggested that all staff and medial providers get their COVID 19 Vaccine as part of 1A so they are protected as Soon As Possible.
