CDC: Colorado ranks 18th in the nation for administering COVID-19 vaccine

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Colorado currently ranks 18th in the nation for COVID-19 vaccines administered per 100,000 people, according to federal health data.

The Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 vaccine tracker shows that Colorado received 381,775 doses of COVID-19 vaccines and has administered 145,164 of those vaccines.

Those figures equate to 6,629 vaccines distributed and 2,521 administered per 100,000 Coloradans, CDC data shows.

State COVID-19 vaccination data is a bit higher showing that 187,641 Coloradans were immunized with the first dose of the vaccine and that 35, 798 of them received a second dose.

CDPHE told KRDO that providers have 72 hours to report doses administered into the system, which equates to 3 day lag in vaccine public reporting.

There is a total of 376 vaccine providers in the state, according to the Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE).

Colorado is currently under phase 1A and 1B of the vaccine process.

CDPHE said as of Monday they had recieved 332,420 cumulative doses, including the6th Pfizer dose.

"The distribution plan is designed to move as fast as the federal supply chain allows. We are expanding options for where people can get a vaccine as more vaccines come into the state and are continuously on boarding vaccination providers. We expect weekly shipments of the vaccines which will allow us to eventually vaccinate everyone who wants one," a CDPHE spokesperson said.

  1. Ahh the shot that does not work. People are still getting COVID after having the shot and getting just as sick even when “they” say it shouldn’t happen. That is what happens when you only have 2 months of trial vs the typical 2-3 years. So many people will have a false sense of security and will still die. Very sad.
