Learn how we put the Hospital Incident Command structure into play for COVID-19 and any other emergency that may arise here.
What you Need to Share
REMINDER: Registration Process for COVID-19 Vaccination
The past several weeks, we have communicated many details on distribution, phasing to staff, and registration process. However, we do understand that communication gaps may still exist – including for those in the 1A and 1B priority employee groups.
IMPORTANT: If you believe you should have been included in the 1A and 1B employee vaccine registration group, but have not received communication on next steps, please do the following:
Log into MyChart to first see if you have an invitation for vaccine registration
For login or support help:
Call MyChart support at 303-602-4380, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Do not call Help Desk, as they will be unable to assist.
If no invitation to register exists in MyChart, email COVID_Vaccine@dhha.org.
Note: We are optimistic all employees in the 1A/1B prioritization groups will be offered the vaccine by Jan. 15, due to the anticipated arrival of the Moderna vaccine by the week of Dec. 21. Future vaccine clinics, likely in early January, will be offered at sites other than the main campus. If you need to wait to be vaccinated until a later date, Denver Health will work with you to get you vaccinated.
You can access the fact sheet and additional information on the Help Center by pointing your cell phone camera at this image.
Information is updated regularly, so please check frequently for new information.
REMINDER: Cyber Threats – Exercise Caution and Keep Denver Health Safe
Cyber threat actors are actively attempting to infiltrate health care organizations with ransomware. Some of these threats are targeting the COVID-19 vaccine supply chain. PLEASE be very careful with emails – pause, review the email including any links – hover over the link with your mouse pointer to ensure the actual Internet location matches the email. Hesitate before opening attachments within emails with the [EXTERNAL] tag in the email Subject Line. Clicking on a malicious link can cause Denver Health to fall victim to Ransomware or other security breaches. This could disable critical systems needed for patient care, including Epic, PACS, Biomed devices, etc. We need your help in preventing these threats from being successful.
Please email COVIDemail@example.com with any questions.
