COVID-19 mass vaccination playbook


Vaccines administered


Cars per hour


Minutes per car

(including 15‑minute observation period)

In collaboration with multiple agencies and community partners, UCHealth was able to successfully vaccinate nearly 10,000 Coloradans in one weekend.

Our goal is to help organizations everywhere have an understanding of the tools and resources they need to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine to their communities as quickly as possible, so we can put this virus behind us.

Mass vaccination playbook

In the playbook we have identified a process that maximizes the safety, convenience and efficiency of administering a large number of vaccines to a large, broad and diverse number of people in a relatively short period of time.

Key statistics from the event:

  • Two, 6-hour days
  • 10,000 vaccines administered
  • 834 cars per hour
  • 22.4 minutes per car, including the 15-minute observation period
  • Zero unused doses
  • .9% patient no-show rate
  • All appointments filled within 72 hours
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
