CDPHE said the provider uses PrepMod scheduling software, which allows the state to contact people with future appointments at that location to reschedule them and direct them to another clinic. Just over 1,000 appointments have been canceled at that location for Saturday, April 10, as well as another 6,000 appointments scheduled through May 8, CDPHE said.

Health officials are working to determine if the provider has records to show that storage protocols have been consistently adhered to, or if this was an isolated incident, CDPHE said. CDPHE said the El Paso County Health Department alerted the Joint Vaccine Task Force after observing a failure to comply with storage protocols at Dr. Moma Health and Wellness Clinic.
