Denver COVID-19 vaccination rate of at least one dose hits 70% mark

At least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination has been given to 70% of eligible Denver residents, age 12 and older, according to city officials.

The local number exceeds “President Biden’s goal of administering at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to 70% of adults, nearly a month ahead of the President’s July 4th deadline,” the city said in a news release.

“This is a major accomplishment for our city and a testament the hard work of our residents who have continued to put the health and safety of themselves, their family and their community front and center,” Mayor Michael Hancock said in the release.

“As our vaccination rates rise, and thanks to that hard work, we’ve been able to responsibly reopen our city, and I encourage everyone who hasn’t yet to get their shot so we can get across that finish line.”
