Colorado Introduces COVID-19 Vaccine Dose Calculator


 

The state launched an interactive tool that provides Coloradans with an easy way to determine the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses that are recommended for them. The number of recommended doses depends on multiple factors, including a person’s age, which vaccine they initially received, and whether they have immunocompromising conditions that may leave them at higher risk of severe illness if they contract COVID-19. Parents and guardians of children under the age of 18 can also use this tool to determine the recommended number of doses for their children. The tool is available in English and Spanish.

 

“This easy-to-use calculator empowers Coloradans to keep up with their recommended COVID-19 vaccines by making it easier than ever to determine which recommendations apply to them or their children,” said Heather Roth, Immunization Branch Chief, CDPHE. “Receiving all recommended follow-up doses of the COVID-19 vaccine provides the highest level of protection for you, your family, and your community.”

 

Vaccines are the safest, most effective way to slow the spread of COVID-19 and its variants, and to help avoid the worst outcomes (severe illness, hospitalization, and death) among those who do become infected. More information about COVID vaccines, as well as assistance with scheduling an appointment, is available at covid19.colorado.gov/vaccine. You can also call Colorado’s Vaccine Hotline to get help finding a vaccine. Call 1-877-CO VAX CO (1-877-268-2926).

 

There are nearly 2,000 vaccine providers across Colorado, including pharmacies, doctor’s offices, and state-run mobile vaccine buses. The COVID-19 vaccine is free. Coloradans don’t need an ID or insurance to get vaccinated and are entitled to paid time off from work to get vaccinated and recover from any side effects.
