All appointments were already booked for the event, but hospital officials say they plan to host more events, including on Sunday.

"We are reaching out to a randomized list of qualified patients individually by email to schedule appointments and will continue to do so as vaccine is available," National Jewish stated on its website.

You do not have to be a National Jewish Health patient to get vaccinated, but you do need to make an appointment before the event.
