PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

Students, faculty and staff members at the University of Colorado Boulder who want to receive the coronavirus vaccine can now join a campus waitlist by completing a vaccine eligibility and status update form.

CU Boulder is following the state’s vaccine distribution guidelines, which means that employees who interact with students, people 50 years of age and older, frontline essential workers and people ages 16-49 who are high risk will likely be eligible for the vaccine later this month.

The campus is notified weekly whether the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment will allocate any vaccines to CU Boulder, according to the announcement.

Information gathered on the form will help the campus determine people’s eligibility to receive the vaccine, according to a notice sent to campus this week, and completing the form is required to receive a vaccine through the campus.

The form asks users for their student or employee identification number, name, date of birth, which phase of the state’s vaccination plan they qualify for and if they identify as an underserved or underrepresented group.

Those who sign up will be notified when they can set up an appointment.

People who can receive the vaccine elsewhere “are encouraged to get the vaccine at your first opportunity,” according to the announcement.

Those who don’t want to receive a vaccine through the campus don’t need to sign up, and people can also remove themselves from the list at a later time.
