Available languages: Español

Colorado’s mobile public health clinics are hitting the road!

These mobile clinics provide low- and no-cost services to Coloradans of all ages. These include routine vaccines required for school and child care, as well as other recommended vaccines like flu, COVID-19, and mpox. The exact vaccines offered depend on the specific clinic.

The Mobile Public Health Clinic Program’s mission is to bridge gaps in access to disease control and public health services, and rapidly respond to emergent issues. Our emphasis is on serving low-income and underserved areas of the state.

Currently, the majority of the program's vaccines come from federal vaccine programs such as the Vaccines for Children and Bridge Access programs. We primarily serve uninsured and underinsured Coloradans. Have health insurance? Find more vaccine provider options near you.

Most health insurance plans cover recommended vaccines for both children and adults at little or no cost. If you don’t have health insurance, you can still get vaccinated at one of our mobile public health clinics. Under a Colorado law called Individual Access To Publicly Funded Vaccines, vaccine providers cannot require you to provide health insurance, ID, or payment in order to access publicly funded vaccines. 

Now is a great time for you and your loved ones to get up to date with routine and recommended vaccines!

What to expect at your appointment


When you sign up for your appointment or arrive at the clinic, you will be asked a few health questions. This will help staff make sure you get the right vaccines, and helps prevent rare allergic reactions to vaccines. If you’re not sure which vaccines you’re recommended to receive, clinic staff can help you find out during your appointment. Bringing your vaccination records to your appointment will help clinic staff know which vaccinations you need. A given clinic may not have all the vaccines you are recommended to receive on hand. 


Your vaccination will take place inside the mobile public health van, outside the van, or indoors, depending on where the clinic is happening. You may be asked to wait in a tent, your car, or another area for an observation period. If you are not feeling well after your vaccine, an on-site health professional will help you. 

You will receive a vaccine card that documents which vaccines you and/or your child received at your appointment. You can use this card to show proof of vaccination for school or child care entry. Your confidential vaccine records will also be updated in the Colorado Immunization Information System.

Accessibility accommodations 

Accessibility accommodations are available at the mobile public health clinics. These include accommodations for people with limited mobility, hearing impairments, visual impairments, and service animals. Patients with limited mobility may choose to receive their vaccination in their vehicle. If you choose to receive your vaccine in your vehicle, a staff member will instruct you where to park. If you need assistance, just ask a staff member.

Language services

Interpretation services are available at the clinics for people who primarily speak languages other than English, including American Sign Language. These services may be provided in person, via video chat, or over the phone, depending on which language is requested. Vaccine information sheets, consent forms, and other printed materials are also available in multiple languages.


Remember to stay hydrated before and after your vaccination. Eat before your appointment or bring a snack with you. Also, feel free to bring a friend or family member.

If you have vaccine records, it will help our staff if you bring them to your appointment. If you have paper vaccine records that are not in the Colorado Immunization Information System already, bring them. Clinic staff can update your vaccine record.

If you’re not sure which vaccines you’re recommended to receive, clinic staff at the mobile public health clinics can help you find out during your appointment. Bringing your vaccine records to the clinic is recommended to make sure you get the vaccine doses you need.

How do I find my vaccine records?

If you were previously vaccinated in Colorado, you can look up your records online in the Colorado Immunization Information System. Our clinic staff can also help you find your vaccine records at your appointment. Your immunization record in the system may not be complete, and you may need to contact your primary care provider or other vaccine provider to get vaccine records that are not available in the information system. 

If you were vaccinated outside of Colorado, contact your vaccine provider or the immunization information system of the state in which you received your vaccines to request a copy of your records.

Do the mobile clinics provide other health services?

At this time, the mobile clinics primarily offer vaccines. They will also provide testing services on an as-needed basis as determined by CDPHE’s epidemiology teams in response to disease outbreaks or other emergency needs. The vans cannot provide clinical services, such as screenings for hypertension, anemia, cancer, or diabetes; skin checks; health assessments; giving medication; or advanced emergency care.

I am a community organizer. How can I request a vaccine clinic in my community?

Organizations can request a community-based mobile vaccine clinic through the Health Equity Community Action & Engagement team by either contacting the Regional Coordinator who serves their county and/or any of the Disproportionately Affected Populations liaisons with whom their organization works. You may also request a clinic by completing our online clinic request form. The clinic request form is for organizations only. If you are not part of an organization, but are interested in having a mobile public health clinic in your community, contact your local public health agency or community-based organization.
