• Get your booster dose and upload your documentation.
  • Pfizer and Moderna vaccine recipients are now eligible for a booster five months after their second dose.

Dear CC Community,
A big thank you to everyone who has already submitted their booster documentation!

As announced in December, Colorado College requires COVID-19 boosters of all students, faculty, and staff members who are eligible.

Please submit documentation to the Student Health Center (students) or Human Resources (employees). 
  • Recipients of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines become eligible for a booster five months after their second dose (please note this changed from six months to five months). 
  • Recipients of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine become eligible for a booster two months after their primary dose.
Need a booster?  
Find a vaccine provider near youCDC recommends boosters for all adults 18+. An on-campus booster clinic will be announced soon. Students who do not have access to boosters at home may receive their booster dose when they return to campus. Contact Heather Horton, hhorton@coloradocollege.edu.

Why are we requiring boosters?
  
According to CDC, while vaccines protect well against severe COVID-19 outcomes, vaccine effectiveness against infection wanes over time. A COVID-19 vaccine booster dose restores vaccine effectiveness against infection. By getting a booster dose when eligible, you greatly reduce your risk of getting sick. As part of our layered mitigation system, along with high filtration masks, ventilation, and regular testing, boosters protect us and those around us and allow us to continue learning and working in person. 

I
n addition, according to new CDC guidance, people who are not up to date with vaccination (eligible for a booster but haven't received one OR unvaccinated) will need to quarantine if in close contact with a person with COVID-19.
  
  
Thank you for protecting our CC community.  

Sincerely,     
Andrea Bruder
Chief Public Health Advisor to the President
