COVID VACCINE

Salud is offering the COVID vaccine to anyone 12 years of age and older.

You do not need to be a Salud patient. 

 

 

If you need to cancel a scheduled appointment, please call (303) 655-4910 and leave a voice mail with your name and date of birth.

Salud staff monitor this voice mail and will cancel your appointment.

ADDITIONAL DOSE FOR IMMUNOCOMPROMISED PEOPLE:

  • If you are immunocompromised, a third dose is now recommended.

  • Please call our Call Center, (303) 697-2583, to schedule your third dose. 

  • Definition of Immunocompromised People:​

    • Active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies.

    • Receipt of solid-organ transplant and taking immunosuppressive therapy.

    • Receipt of CAR-T-cell or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (within 2 years of transplantation
      or taking immunosuppression therapy).

    • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich
      syndrome).

    • Advanced or untreated HIV infection.

    • Active treatment with high dose corticosteroids (i.e., ≥20mg prednisone or equivalent per day),
      alkylating agents, antimetabolites, transplant-related immunosuppressive drugs, cancer
      chemotherapeutic agents classified as severely immunosuppressive, tumor-necrosis (TNF)
      blockers, and other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory.​

COMING SOON- COVID "BOOSTER" SHOTS:

  • In the Future- Salud will offer a "booster" shot to other populations as directed by the CDC. Please continue to check this page for updates. 

PLEASE BRING THE FOLLOWING TO YOUR SCHEDULED VACCINE APPOINTMENT:

  • Salud still requires you to wear your mask in our clinics.

  • Insurance card, if you have one (please know, the vaccine is completely FREE for you to receive)

    • Why are you asking me to bring my insurance card in if the vaccine is free?

This can be confusing, but please know the COVID vaccine is completely FREE to you.

You do NOT need insurance to receive the vaccine.

But if you DO have insurance, Salud wants the insurance to cover the costs involved in providing the vaccine such as refrigeration of the vaccine, staff time to schedule and give the shot. Again, this will not be paid by you. Salud needs to bill the insurance to keep our vaccine programs operating.

There are a lot of costs involved in providing the vaccine. Insurance, like Medicaid, Medicare or private, helps us cover some of those costs.

OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE COVID VACCINE:

  • Whether you are a U.S. citizen or not, we are all in this together. An ID is not required for access to the vaccine.​ State and local public health agencies will never share your information for any immigration or law enforcement purposes. Receiving the COVID-19 vaccine will not count against you in any public charge determinations.

  • Like other routine vaccinations, you will need to share some personal information with your vaccine provider when you get a COVID-19 vaccine. This information will only be used for public health purposes. It may include your name, date of birth, and contact information. Your information will remain protected.

  • Sharing your identity and some of your medical history ensures that the vaccine is administered safely, effectively, and responsibly. Your immunization records are confidential, personal medical information, and public health will protect it.

COST:

The vaccine is completely FREE for you to receive.
