DENVER – With Halloween and the holiday season fast approaching, it is important to implement COVID-19 safety precautions to keep friends and loved ones safe during celebrations. With holiday celebrations bringing generations together, the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment (DDPHE) recommends anyone age 12 years and older get vaccinated before the festivities begin. All three COVID-19 vaccines are free, readily available and requires no proof of insurance or identification.
For information including where to find a vaccine, frequently asked questions about vaccines, information about vaccine safety, and myth-busting answers, visit Denvergov.org or text your ZIP code to GETVAX (438829) in English, or VACUNA (822862) in Spanish, to get the contact information of three nearby locations with available vaccines.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) recommend taking the following precautions this Halloween and holiday season:
Those planning to travel for a holiday or event should visit the CDC’s Travel page to help decide the best plans for travel. The CDC still recommends delaying travel until all those traveling are fully vaccinated.
For those who are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow CDC’s domestic travel or international travel recommendations for unvaccinated people.
Additional resources about vaccination, testing, and booster shots can be found on DDPHE’s COVID-19 webpage.
