How Denver students can get a COVID-19 vaccine

Young adults ages 16 and up are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and Denver Public Schools is partnering with two health providers to offer students multiple opportunities to get inoculated.

Denver Health is hosting six mass-vaccination clinics on various school campuses starting April 17.

Each student should check their DPS email account for a one-time, unique sign-up code and then log in to or register for a MyChart account on Denver Health’s website. These are expected to be drive-thru clinics, said spokesperson Rachel Hirsch, but this weekend’s have been moved inside schools due to inclement weather.

Student are able to sign up for one of the following vaccination dates:

  • April 17 at Evie Garrett Dennis Campus (inside in the cafeteria)
  • April 18 at Abraham Lincoln Campus (inside in the cafeteria)
  • April 24 at South High School
  • April 25 at Manuel High School
  • May 1 at North High School
  • May 2 at East High School

Appointments are required and available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Students will need to either bring a parent or guardian with them or have a parent or guardian fill out this consent form for treatment.

Students may also sign up for an appointment through Children’s Hospital Colorado. Each person under the age of 18 must bring an adult or guardian with them to receive their first and second doses.
