A nurse administering a Covid-19 vaccine to a man.Effective today at 4 p.m., the Auraria Campus’ 5th Street Garage vaccine distribution site will convert to an “open scheduling” model now that Phase 2 implementation has been approved by Gov. Jared Polis.

Individual invitations will no longer be sent weekly to qualifying Auraria constituents, but our campus community will maintain vaccine priority. You will still need to make an appointment by clicking on the Auraria scheduling link below to receive a vaccination.

The new open scheduling model will work as follows.

  • For any week that the Health Center at Auraria secures vaccine from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), you will receive an email from your institution when open scheduling occurs that week and that appointments can be scheduled starting at 4 p.m. that same day. These emails will most likely be sent on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.
  • The number of appointment slots will vary each week based on the amount of vaccine that is allocated by the CDPHE. Since appointment slots fill quickly, be sure to promptly access the Auraria scheduling webpage at 4 p.m. on the day notified. Each week’s schedule will remain open until all slots are filled.
  • The new open scheduling template will be available exclusively to Auraria constituents. Use the link below to schedule your vaccine appointment.

Auraria Constituent Covid-19 Vaccine Scheduling

  • Open scheduling is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Please note that numerous mass-vaccination sites are now open in Colorado. The 5th Street Garage site is one of many that have converted to open scheduling now that the State has authorized Phase 2 distribution. You can receive the vaccine at any vaccine distribution site in the state by making an appointment.
  • It is critically important that all Auraria students, faculty and staff receive vaccinations at their earliest opportunity. We encourage everyone to schedule at the 5th Street Garage location or ANY of the other vaccine distribution sites in the state. Family members and friends of Auraria constituents who are not students, faculty or staff working on campus or attending school on the campus are advised to use one of the mass-vaccination sites linked below:
  • Having a vaccinated Auraria community will directly improve campus safety, enabling a robust in-person fall semester. Thank you for getting vaccinated as soon as possible!

Note: Due to health care privacy considerations and pandemic communications needs, we are unable to remove those who have been vaccinated from future communications. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to get our population vaccinated.
