COVID-19 Vaccine Information 

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.

Join Us at One of Our COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics!

Front Range Community College is having our first COVID Vaccine Clinics this summer—one on each of our three campuses. They’re open to all students and employees, as well as the general public. During these clinics, the Pfizer vaccine will be administered in partnership with TrueCare 24. Anyone 12 years of age and older can participate. For more information, review the FDA's fact sheet for Pfizer.

  • Bring a photo ID.
  • Wear loose clothing that will allow access to your upper arm.
  • Immediately after vaccination, you will be asked to wait for 15-30 minutes in the recovery area to ensure your health and safety is a priority.
  • Wear a mask at all times while in the testing area; no exceptions.
  • An important reminder: If you're currently sick, please do not come in for your vaccine, as it's best to remain home and not expose others.

More COVID-19 Information

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.

    The state of Colorado has implemented a $1 million lottery for every Coloradan who gets vaccinated against COVID-19. If you’re vaccinated and over 18, you’re automatically entered to win.

    As part of this public health initiative, the Colorado Lottery will conduct a random weekly drawing on behalf of the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment to identify one vaccinated Colorado resident each week to win a million-dollar cash prize.

    It can take a few days for information to be entered into the system, so you should try to get vaccinated as far in advance of the drawings as possible. The last day to qualify is June 30. The winner of each drawing will be announced on June 4, June 11, June 18, June 25 and July 7. See all the details and rules at www.coloradocomebackcash.com.
