Shots for Tots and Teens

Shots for Tots and Teens is resuming our clinics for 2021 on a clinic-by-clinic basis. For information on individual clinics, including upcoming dates, locations and appointment requirements, please view the 2021 Shots for Tots and Teens flyer.

During COVID-19, it is very important not to delay vaccines, especially for young children; we encourage families to keep up to date with recommended immunizations! If you are unable to attend a Shots for Tots and Teens clinic but still need vaccines, contact your local health department

Shots for Tots and Teens' goal is to make sure every child receives the immunizations needed to keep them healthy. The program offers low- and no-cost immunization clinics throughout the year in Aurora, Denver, Thornton and Arvada with the help of experienced immunization nurses, fire medics, paramedics, health care and community volunteers. 

All recommended immunizations are available for children ages 0 to 18 years and most clinics offer adult vaccines. Due to COVID-19, appointments are required at most clinics; please call for more information.
