COVID-19 Vaccine Info

Update: August 20, 2021

Third Doses Now Available for Eligible Individuals (18+ only)

BCH now offers an additional COVID vaccine dose (third dose) for people 18 and older with a moderately to severely compromised immune system. This is typically due to:

  • Organ or stem cell transplant
  • HIV infection
  • Some inflammatory or immune deficiency disorders
  • Certain treatments for cancer that can impair the body’s ability to fight infections.

Additional information on eligibility is available on the CDC website here.

The CDC recommends that eligible individuals receive an additional dose of the same vaccine that they originally received. At this time, the CDC’s recommendation only applies to recipients of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

We are awaiting additional guidance related to the J&J vaccine. However, it is recommended that those who received the J&J vaccine not get a dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

To determine if you are eligible and to schedule a third-dose appointment, login to your MyBCH or call our COVID Vaccine Clinic scheduling number at 303-415-7777.

Update: August 18, 2021

As of 8/18/21, the BCH COVID Vaccine Clinic will be open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. by appointment. Walk-ins cannot be guaranteed a vaccine and may experience longer wait times.

You may schedule an appointment by calling 303-415-7777 or using the MyBCH portal.

Colorado Comeback Cash – COVID Vaccine Lottery Drawings

Colorado Comeback Cash is a new public health initiative in Colorado intended to promote and incentivize COVID-19 vaccination. It consists of weekly drawings that eligible Colorado residents will automatically be entered into if they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine subject to eligibility rules.

Entries are automatic upon receiving at least the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. As a vaccination site, Boulder Community Health is required by law to report all vaccinations to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) through the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS). If you received your vaccine from BCH, your information has been submitted to the State.

BCH cannot verify your information in the CIIS. Please read the following for questions related to the lottery.

How do I know my information is in the Colorado vaccination database?

Vaccine providers are required to report every dose of COVID-19 vaccine that they administer to the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS). The vast majority of people who have been vaccinated in Colorado are in the vaccination database. Most doses are reported within one to three days of administration and the remaining are usually reported within four to seven days. If you would like to confirm that you are in the database, you may check your vaccination records through the online Colorado Immunization Information System Public Portal here. To protect health records, what you enter into the form must exactly match what was inputted by your vaccine provider. You are likely in the database even if you cannot find your records in the portal.

What if I can’t I find my vaccination records in CIIS’s online portal?

When searching through the portal, the following fields must match exactly you provided to your vaccine provider: first name, last name, date of birth, gender, and mobile phone number and/or email address. If you are unable to find your information in the portal, call Colorado’s vaccine hotline for assistance at 1-877-CO VAX CO (1-877-268-2926).

    Video: BCH Infectious Disease Specialists Review COVID-19 Vaccine

    There’s intense interest in understanding more about the COVID vaccines. We encourage you to watch a thorough and valuable presentation from Dr. Mark King and Dr. Amie Meditz of BCH’s Beacon Center for Infectious Diseases. The presentation — below — includes information on how the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines work, side effects, and much more.

    While the vaccine rollout is a vital step in our fight against COVID-19, it’s important to remember that mask-wearing and social distancing continue to be critical components in this fight.

    Important Information

    Boulder Community Health is following current guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that call for patients and visitors to continue wearing masks at Foothills Hospital and all BCH patient-care facilities.
