Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
MSU Denver and the Health Center at Auraria are pleased to announce that starting October 4, 2021 COVID-19 booster shots (shot 3 for those who initially received two doses of Pfizer vaccine) and flu shots will be available on-campus according to the plan and stipulations detailed below.
Only Pfizer vaccinated individuals are currently eligible for the Covid-19 booster
Please note that at this time COVID-19 booster shots (for non-immunocompromised individuals) are not available to those who initially received either Moderna or J&J COVID-19 vaccine. As additional information regarding these two manufacturers becomes known, the campus community will be informed. Immunocompromised individuals needing a Moderna booster shot should inquire about availability at a local community pharmacy, since these are not available at the Health Center at Auraria. Currently, there is not an approved J&J booster for immunocompromised individuals.
REQUIREMENT 1 of 3:
You must have already received two doses of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Pfizer is the only approved booster shot at this time.
REQUIREMENT 2 of 3:
Your booster shot eligibility is based on when your second dose of COVID-19 vaccine was administered. Six (6) months or more must have passed in order for you to be eligible. See the eligibility guideline table below.

REQUIREMENT 3 of 3:
You must meet one of the following stipulations.
CDPHE has advised that while providers may reference these categories, no person should be turned away from receiving a Pfizer booster if they self-attest to being at increased risk due to where they work or live and meet the other requirements.
Based on stipulation #5 of CDPHE’s cited reference above, all MSU Denver and Auraria campus faculty and staff meet requirement 3 and are eligible to attain a booster shot when they meet requirements 1 and 2.
*Qualifying underlying health conditions include the following per the CDC.
If you meet the eligibility requirements outlined in 1-3 above, then go to Healthcenter1.com to schedule your COVID-19 booster shot. All booster shots must be scheduled.
If you do not have a vaccine card, visit the Colorado Immunization and Information Systems portal to print out a copy of your vaccine record.
Plan to wait for 15 minutes after receiving your booster shot before you will be permitted to leave the vaccine location.
Please note that if you are age 65 or older you will need to attain your flu shot at a local community pharmacy, Target, other distributor or your PCP, since a higher dose flu vaccine (which the Health Center does not carry) is required for anyone 65 or older.
