9:04 a.m. | Federally run vaccination site coming to Pueblo, White House announces
The White House COVID-19 Response Team says a federally run mass vaccination site is coming to Pueblo.
The President committed to open at least 12 more federally run mass vaccination sites. Last week, we announced 5 new sites: Maryland, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Missouri and Indiana.
Today, we’re announcing 3 additional new sites:
– Columbia, SC
– Pueblo, CO
– St. Paul, MN

The federally run vaccination site will open next week “to accelerate COVID-19 vaccinations in Pueblo and rural communities throughout southern Colorado at high risk of infection,” states a news release from the Gov. Jared Polis’ office.
The site is a joint effort from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management which transitions the current state site at the Colorado State Fairgrounds to a FEMA Pilot Site.
