We have received a number of inquiries from physicians interested in volunteering to assist at COVID-19 vaccination sites. The Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment (CDPHE) has advised us that the only current platform available for volunteer registration is at https://covolunteers.state.co.us/.
Our understanding is that they have not yet activated this resource since the limiting factor has been vaccine availability rather than vaccinators. However, there has been recent comment at the federal level encouraging the use of volunteer healthcare professionals to assist in the vaccination effort and it is anticipated that expanding vaccine availability and broadening of eligible populations will create a need in the future. We will continue to monitor developments in this area and provide further information as it becomes available.
Vaccine Availability Update
We have just learned of two possible administration sites for COVID-19 vaccinations. We cannot guarantee availability when you call but are sharing this information as we get it as we have received many inquiries and are trying to share resources as we become aware of them.

New Vaccine Announcement
The Denver Medical Society is joining with the Colorado Medical Society to announce a new opportunity for physicians and their staffs to receive COVID-19 vaccinations. We have heard from many members about their inability to get vaccinated. Today we are proud to offer physicians and their frontline staff teams that have not been vaccinated yet a chance to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
This opportunity is a result of a new partnership with CDPHE and Children's Hospital Colorado. While it may not be convenient for every member, we are continuing to work tirelessly to find solutions for ALL physicians and their teams. If you haven't been vaccinated yet, we encourage you to seize this opportunity.
They are ready to vaccinate YOU and YOUR TEAM.
