Vaccinating Our Community

At CU Anschutz, we secured a limited supply of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, and have scheduled vaccination appointments at our on-campus point of distribution (POD) located in the Ed 2 South building for university employees and students not previously invited to schedule through our hospital partners, as well as family members, on a first come, first served basis.

  • All available dates at the POD have filled quickly, but the clinic continues to assess its waitlist as slots open up due to cancellations or no-shows. If you are on the waitlist and receive an opportunity to schedule, please do so as quickly as possible, so that we may gauge our ability to continue extending invitations.
  • If you have not received an invitation and are in need of a vaccine appointment, please contact adminexceptions@cuanschutz.edu. We will assist as available vaccine permits.
  • Please note that, per State of Colorado, our on-campus POD site is prohibited from administering the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to anyone who received their first dose at another location. If you received your first dose elsewhere in Colorado, you will need to return to the same location to schedule or receive your second dose.

Members of the campus community are encouraged to get the COVID-19 vaccine at the earliest opportunity to do so. Find details on Colorado vaccination sites here.

The more members of our campus who are vaccinated, the better our overall health and opportunities as a community.


Vaccination Through UCHealth: My Health Connection

One way to obtain your COVID-19 vaccine may be through UCHealth. 

Make sure you have a My Health Connection account with UCHealth, or set up an account today, by clicking the gold button below. 

Access My Health Connection Account

This is an essential step to ensure you are set up with UCHealth for notification of vaccination options through their system. Do not create a new account if you have an existing account. 

Once you become eligible and vaccine doses are available through UCHealth, you will be notified via email to the address on your My Health Connection account. Be sure to act quickly upon notification to secure your vaccination appointments.

Visit the UCHealth COVID-19 Vaccine website or call their COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 720.462.2255.


Do Your Part

As the vaccination process continues to unfold, we must remain vigilant and continue taking the steps we know work.

On-campus safety protocols remain in place, even for those who have been vaccinated. 

Even once vaccinated, it is vital to follow current guidance – including mask wearing and avoiding close contact with others – to reduce your chance of exposure or spreading the virus to others. For the CU Anschutz community, this guidance includes self-reporting even after vaccination if you may have been exposed, test positive or develop COVID-19 symptoms.
