Colorado will begin offering on-site vaccine clinics at workplaces through the state, Gov. Jared Polis announced on Tuesday.

“We can work with the employer or the union or the trade association of any size — 30 employees, 300 employees (or) 3,000 employees,” Polis said.

Employers can register at On-site clinics should be available starting next week.

The idea is to increase the state’s inoculation rates, which haven’t been rising as quickly in recent weeks as supply begins to outpace demand. The governor has prioritized meeting people where it’s convenient for them in trying to get more people vaccinated.

Polis also said he thinks that the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine could be available to Coloradans 12 to 15 years old as soon as this weekend after receiving sign off from federal regulators on Monday.

Colorado has been stockpiling Pfizer vaccine so that it can quickly get younger people vaccinated.

“I think we’re in a good supply situation to meet the need,” Polis said.
