NEW: Open Forum for COVID-19 Vaccine Questions – Jan. 29

“COVID-19 Vaccinations: An interactive hour to discuss vaccine safety and efficacy.

This Friday, at noon, Dr. James Gaensbauer, Pediatric Infectious Disease physician will lead a Webex forum on COVID-19 Vaccinations. The intention of this forum is to help answer staff questions about the vaccine. An invitation has been sent to staff who originally answered that they hadn’t decided if they wanted to get the vaccine/individuals who have yet to sign up for a first dose.

We are extending this invite to other staff as well, with the hopes that an open dialogue will help individuals make an informed decision for themselves.

To participate in the WebEx please add the attached invite to your calendar for Friday, January 29th, 2021 from 12:00 – 1:00 PM and come ready with questions.

REMINDER: Face Masks and Face Shields are Still Mandatory For Staff At Work

While more Denver Health staff continue to get vaccinated, we need to remind physicians, nurses, providers and staff that face masks and face shields are required (as applicable to your job), whether or not you have gotten your second vaccine. Face masks and face shields continue to be another line of defense in protecting yourself, your colleagues and your patients. At this time there is no timeline for when this directive will be lifted.

REMINDER: Vaccine Registration Open for All Area Residents 70+

On Friday, Denver Health joined other area hospitals in opening up online and phone registration for the COVID-19 vaccine to anyone age 70 and older, in accordance with guidelines from the State. The vaccination registration form and hotline is for individuals to indicate interest in receiving a vaccination. Once people are registered, we will contact them to schedule an appointment based on vaccine availability. The online form and hotline are on the Denver Health website.

NOTE: Denver Health patients should not sign up through the COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Registration Form. We continue to reach out to our patients through MyChart, email, phone and our normal processes to schedule appointments when their priority group becomes eligible. Once invitations are sent, patients can still schedule an appointment through MyChart or through the appointment center at 303-436-4949.
