Starting Friday, appointments are no longer needed for COVID-19 shots at the five city-sponsored community vaccination sites.

The hours for each site vary, so make sure you know when each one is open before you try to get a shot there. The city had previously focused on providing vaccines for people living in zip codes near the sites. The city said you can now get a shot at any of the five sites regardless of where you live or your residency status.

Walk-up vaccines will be available at the following sites and times this weekend:

Friday, April 30

  • Montbello High School (14274 E. 51st Ave.) from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Saturday, May 1

  • Montbello High School, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Rec Center (3880 Newport St.) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sunday, May 2

  • Montbello High School, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Barnum Recreation Center (360 Hooker St.) from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The two additional community vaccination sites are at:

  • Swansea Recreation Center (2650 E. 49th Ave.)
  • John F. Kennedy High School (2855 S. Lamar St.)

The city encourages people to call 720-865-3005 for times and dates of operation at each site. Residents 16 and older are eligible to get a vaccine at these sites, though people aged 16 and 17 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The vaccines are free.

More than 360,000 people in the city have gotten their first dose, and more than 240,000 people are fully vaccinated, according to the city.
