COVID-19 Vaccinations

In a nutshell: Mines still doesn’t know when higher education faculty, staff and students will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccination in Colorado. We are currently working with the Colorado Department of Higher Education to seek clarification.

We’ll let you know here and in the weekly Mines Climbs Together email as soon as we have an update.

Please note: Be wary of any emails you receive regarding vaccinations. The Information Security Team in ITS is anticipating email phishing attacks that attempt to trick individuals into divulging sensitive information to “sign up” for vaccinations. This page is being set up in part to warn against and combat such possible attempts.

Should Mines need to communicate to employees and/or students about vaccinations in the future, that information will be sent by the Mines Pandemic Response Team and/or the Human Resources office.
