How were the first locations to receive the first round of vaccines decided?

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), in close collaboration with local public health agencies across the state, identified 24 locations with ultra low temperature freezers to receive the first shipment of Pfizer's ultra cold vaccine. CDPHE has purchased and distributed an additional 10 ultra low temperature freezers. 

The identified locations across the state were chosen for their unique abilities to store, monitor, and handle vaccines in ultra-cold temperatures (-60°C to -80°C) as well as their willingness to redistribute COVID-19 vaccine(s) to other Phase 1 providers in their regions. The state also considered equitable geographic distribution as well as transportation logistics given expected winter conditions in the coming months.
