Before it was Ball Arena – and even before vaccines were available – the former Pepsi Center served as the epicenter for COVID-19 testing in Denver. Now, the same site is set to usher in a new phase of the pandemic by offering continuous vaccines – which will be available to all adults over 16 from April 2. Announced today by Governor Jared Polis via social media, the new site will join Colorado’s growing list of community vaccination sites.
It will be the first mass vaccination site in Denver with the second closest option in Adams County at Dicks Sporting Goods Park. But unlike Dicks and many other community vaccination sites, Ball Arena will work with TrueCare24 over Centura Health. This central location plans to offer 1,000 vaccines per day and has the capacity to do 6,000 once supplies are available. The vaccines are free, without co-payment and will be offered from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday.
