​COVID-19 VACCINE

Thornton Fire Department in coordination with Tri-County Health Department (TCHD), City and County of Broomfield, and North Suburban Medical Center, are working a local vaccine distribution plan. Vaccine supply continues to be very limited, with allocation distributed on a weekly basis, many times the amount of doses being recieved is not known well in advance. 

Thornton Fire Department currently receives small shipments of the vaccine from TCHD and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and is hoping for future shipments on a regular basis. Thornton Fire operates a drive-thru vaccination clinic at the Margaret Carpenter Recreation Center, 11151 Colorado Boulevard.

To receive a vaccine you will be required to pre-register for an appointment before arriving at the site. Unfortunately due to the uncertainty and potential delays in delivery of new vaccines, the scheduled clinic days and pre-registration slots per day will vary each week until vaccine delivery becomes more reliable. Each week the new schedule will be posted and the sign-up will be made available to residents.

We ask for your patience and understanding during this process as we work with our partners to get vaccines out as quickly and as safely as we can!
