The City of Castle Pines was excited to work with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Safeway to bring a pop-up vaccine center to the City of Castle Pines this month. Working with Safeway pharmacy and Mayor Hancock’s staffs to quickly move through site selection and permitting, the center was operational in just 2 days.
“It was a pleasure to work with Safeway, Mayor Radloff and other regional partners to bring a vaccine center to Castle Pines,” Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock said. “The virus knows no borders, and this is a great example of how a regional approach can address our common needs and concerns.”
The clinic is running smoothly and is now offering up to 1,200 doses per day, a great use for a once vacant space. “While they don’t have an ongoing presence in our community, Safeway has demonstrated they can be a resource to the community of Castle Pines,” says Castle Pines Mayor Tera Radloff.
"We are excited to be able to offer vaccine to the community of Castle Pines and surrounding areas. Our goal is to vaccinate as many individuals who are in need of the vaccine and will continue to do so in the future," said Director of Albertsons/Safeway Pharmacy Operations Nikki Price.
You may see a long line outside of the clinic, those are just people who have arrived early for their appointment and cannot yet be admitted to the building. If you have not yet received your COVID-19 vaccine and want one there is still availability at this clinic and appointments are being added all the time.
