Anyone 12 and older can get a free COVID-19 vaccine at a pharmacy, doctor’s office, pop-up clinic, or mobile vaccine bus near you. No ID or insurance needed. Most providers take walk-ins and same-day appointments. You are entitled to paid time off from your job to get vaccinated and recover from any side effects.
Northglenn residents may call the Northglenn Senior Center at 303.450.8801 to find a vaccine.
Another way to find a vaccine clinic by calling the state's vaccine hotline at 877-CO VAX CO (877-268-2926). The hotline is available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

We are taking precautions and monitoring the situation continuously. We also ask residents to stay home if you are feeling ill, please wash hands often (and well), practice social distancing, and use a face covering in public areas to help curb the spread of germs. Northglenn has plans in place to maintain continuous operations of critical services (police, water, wastewater, trash/recycling) during emergency situations.
See https://www.northglenn.org/city_of_northglenn_coronavirus_operations.php for city services and operations information.
From serious winter storms to illness to natural disasters to chemical exposures -- the plan designates responsibilities and actions such as how to utilize internal resources; when to request assistance; what contracts are in place to support essential services; communicating with residents, employees and neighboring agencies; and command structure.
We follow FEMA practices including the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS). These standard response protocols enable us to work with other agencies easily if an emergency requires support outside of city resources.
Emergency preparedness goes beyond city borders -- Northglenn works in conjunction with North Metro Fire Rescue, Adams County and the State of Colorado for emergency planning and response.
