The Denver Health Pediatrics Clinic at Thomas Jefferson is proud to offer the Pfizer COVID vaccine right here on the TJ campus.  Vaccines for 5-11 year olds were approved by the CDC on Nov 2nd.  Denver Health will be hosting a vaccination clinic on Wednesday,  November 17th from 4:00 – 7pm and December 8th from 4:00 – 7pm here at TJ HS. COVID vaccines for those 12 and older will be offered as well. These appointments can be scheduled by calling 303-602-8958.  Here’s a link to find other sites to get your child vaccinated:  https://covid19.colorado.gov/kids-vaccines 

If you are interested in DPS students or family members receiving a vaccine at another time, please call the Denver Health Pediatric Clinic at TJ to schedule an appointment 720-423-7190. COVIID testing for symptomatic students is also available. As COVID numbers start to rise around the state, protecting our community is our priority.
