Announcing FRCC's New Mask Requirement

Effective Tuesday, August 10, 2021, masks must be worn in all indoor public areas at all FRCC buildings. Get more information on this new requirement.

Protect our Pack by Getting Vaccinated



While the COVID-19 vaccine is not required to join us on campus or to attend courses, FRCC is encouraging all members of our community to get vaccinated. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective and free. In Colorado, the vaccine is available to anyone 12 and older.


Making a vaccine appointment is easy! There are many different resources to help you find an appointment that works for you.  

  • COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective
  • You may experience side effects after vaccination. These are normal and should go away in a few days. 
  • It typically takes two weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19. You are not fully vaccinated until two weeks after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after a one-dose vaccine. 
  • Learn how to find a COVID-19 vaccine so you can get it as soon as possible. 
  • People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

The COVID-19 vaccine is completely free for everyone, and many providers do not require any documentation to receive the vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccination providers cannot

  • Charge you for the vaccine 
  • Charge you directly for any administration fees, copays, coinsurance, or the balance of the bill after appropriate reimbursement 
  • Deny vaccination to anyone who does not have health insurance coverage, is underinsured, or is out of network 
  • Charge an office visit or other fee to the recipient if the only service provided is a COVID-19 vaccination
  • Require additional services in order for a person to receive a COVID-19 vaccine; however, additional healthcare services can be provided at the same time and billed as appropriate 

CDC's Key Things To Know

You can even get a free ride to your vaccination. Don’t let transportation challenges stop you—or other people you know—from getting vaccinated. Here’s how to get a lift at no cost:

  • Mile High United Way’s Ride United program provides access to free rides to vaccination sites across Colorado, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. -5 p.m. Call 2-1-1 now to learn more.
    • Lyft and Uber are also offering free transportation to and from vaccine clinics.
