Adams County and Platte Valley Medical Center have partnered to open a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Adams County Government Center Conference Center, 4430 S. Adams County Pkwy., Brighton.
The clinic is open by appointment only, to those age 70 and over. No walk-ins will be accepted. Pre-registration is required. Information on the registration process is provided below.
“We know vaccines from the Federal Government are in short supply right now, but we are very optimistic supplies will increase soon. We want to make sure as soon as we get a vaccine, we get that vaccine to someone who needs it, and we couldn’t do that without strong partners like Platte Valley,” said Emma Pinter, Adams County Commissioner and Board Chair. “This is a critical step in getting our community healthy, keeping our hospitals from being overwhelmed, and getting our economy back on track.”
Adams County and Platte Valley Medical Center are committed to equity and prioritizing getting everyone eligible in the community access to a vaccination, especially those communities who have been hardest hit by the pandemic.
"Over the past several weeks, we've begun to vaccinate our staff, providers, and first responders,” said John Hicks, President and CEO, Platte Valley Medical Center. “We are thrilled to now offer this vital public health service to those aged 70 and over, per state guidelines. We appreciate our partners at Adams County who have generously supplied us with additional space and resources."
Hours of Operation
Hours of operation will be variable based on the amount of vaccine received. Please check carefully at the time of scheduling and just prior to your appointment to confirm the current hours of operation. If vaccine supply is available, the standard hours of operation will be:
Thursday – Sunday, 8:30 a.m. – noon, 1 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Patients may also fill out the online form at sclhealth.org/CoVidVaccine to be notified when a vaccine appointment is available for them. Appointments will only be available for individuals who are eligible for vaccination based on state guidelines, and outreach will be randomized and equitable.
“Vaccine distribution is our priority and coming together as a community and partnering with Platte Valley and other local organizations will help us get as many vaccines to our residents as possible, especially our most vulnerable populations,” said Raymond Gonzales, Adams County Manager. “Adams County will continue doing its part to ensure the vaccines are distributed to as many people as possible, as soon as possible.”
Vaccine supply is managed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), and Platte Valley is in constant communication with CDPHE to determine how much vaccine they can anticipate each week and will open vaccination appointments accordingly. It’s anticipated appointments will fill up quickly. More appointments will open each week as additional shipments of the vaccine are received. If you do not find an available appointment right away, please continue to check back.
