(Updated 5/3/21) We are working to get access to the vaccine through the state and we will do all we can to offer it to our patients. Right now, there is a limited supply of the vaccine available and the state is controlling the distribution for those most in need. We will communicate more information as we come closer to being able to offer the vaccine. For the most updated information on vaccine availability in the state of Colorado and in your county, visit the links below. Please know that RMCC has no control over scheduling or technical difficulties through the links provided.
The CDC has put out new options that would reduce the 14-day quarantine [after a known COVID-19 exposure] to between 7-10 days depending on the lack of symptoms and negative test results. While these options are available, this does not change our current guidelines for determining patients’ return to the clinic or employees’ return to work. We will continue to abide by the 14-day recommendation to maintain the highest level of safety for our community. The State of Colorado has not changed their recommendations and are upholding the 14-day quarantine guideline.
Patients with a high-risk exposure who have been fully vaccinated (>14 days from final injection) do not need to quarantine unless symptomatic but are still required to adhere to our mask policy when in the clinic.

Therefore, our cancer centers ask that all patients and caregivers abide by the following rules in order to keep everyone safe:
Additionally, the following restrictions are still in place:
