Connections for Independent Living has teamed with North Colorado Health Alliance and Sunrise Community Health to host a series of mobile clinics in northeastern Colorado communities. Our first tour was December 20-22, 2021, with stops in Greeley, Haxtun, Wray, and Yuma. Nearly 300 Coloradans received vaccinations at these stops.
The second tour of our Connections Colorado Vaccine Bus Clinics was successful! 36 people recieved vacinations at one of our four stops that included Kersey, Holyoke, Julesburg, and Akron.
Schedule your appointment for any of these clinics online.
These mobile clinics in partnership with the State of Colorado were provided at no cost to the recipient the COVID-19 vaccines and the seasonal flu vaccine.
Listen to Connections Executive Director Rochelle Mitchell-Miller, recorded live on KFKA’s NOCO Now with Tanner Schwindt December 20. She discusses Connections’ Colorado Vaccine Bus Tour with our partner organizations and why vaccinations are important for Coloradans who live with disabling conditions.
It’s clear there is plenty of confusing, contradictory, and even misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccines. At Connections for Independent Living, our team stands ready to provide guidance and assistance in making sure you’re safe from potential infection or illness resulting from the COVID-19 virus.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that Americans age 18 and older can receive booster shots for the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
The booster should be of the same vaccine, if possible, but “mix-and-match” vaccinations are permitted.
Boosters can be administered at least six months following the primary series for those who received Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. For individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, a booster can be added at two months following vaccination. There is no cost to receiving a booster shot. Individuals can self-attest they are eligible for the booster; no note or order from a doctor is necessary.
Watch a short video from the Administration for Community Living regarding boosters for older persons and individuals who live with disabling conditions. Boosters can help keep your family safe.
