Keeping our community safe

COVID-19 Vaccinations

As of May 2021, anyone over the age of 12 in Colorado is eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, and anyone over the age of 18 is eligible to receive the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Other states are opening eligibility as well. To meet the vaccine requirement and to have full protection in time for Fall 2021, we are recommending students get vaccinated as soon as they have the opportunity. For students who do not have access to the vaccines in their home communities, we are planning to host a COVID-19 vaccination clinic on campus the week prior to the start of the Fall 2021 term. More information on that to come.

Fall 2021

All students enrolling at FLC for the Fall 2021 semester will be required to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Protocols when not vaccinated

In alignment with the CDC and Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, all individuals who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID will be required to test regularly, maintain appropriate distancing and wear masks indoors as well as when physical distancing isn't possible. This policy applies to all visitors, employees, and students.

MMR Vaccinations

State of Colorado Law requires all students to submit an immunization record with proof of two MMR vaccinations (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) to the Student Health Center. Students interested in getting the MMR vaccine through the Student Health Center should call 970-247-7355 to schedule an appointment. The cost of the MMR vaccination $85.00 or an MMR Titer is $87.00 (subject to change based on market price).

A current copy of your immunization record must be submitted by:

  • May 25, 2021, for the Summer 2021 semester
