Smaller clinics continue to show up at events all across Colorado. CBS4 visited the popup clinic at the Levitt Pavilion in Denver. The venue is offering the COVID-19 vaccine during their free summer concert series.
State officials say 3.1 million Colorado adults have had at least one dose, and nearly 3 million are fully immunized.

“To see it go from a lot to now less is actually encouraging because that means more of our population is vaccinated, which is great overall for Colorado,” said Lott-Holmes. “I’m really excited that Colorado has embraced getting out there and being safe as a population and caring about each other as Coloradans.”
Denver met the 70% benchmark of all eligible residents earlier in June.
On June 28, the state announced all state-run vaccination centers would close by July 4.MORE NEWS: CDC Says COVID Vaccine Booster Isn't Necessary- Yet
