Power the Comeback - How can my business/workplace get involved?
The state of Colorado is asking businesses to help Power the Comeback this summer by supporting employees who want to be vaccinated and promoting policies for COVID-safe workplaces. Vaccines are Colorado’s key to a future after the pandemic. After vaccination, Coloradans can go back to enjoying the things we like again safely. This is how we return to a more normal life.
Here’s how to get your business involved:
- Take the Power The Comeback/COVID Safe Business Pledge to become an official Power the Comeback Business Partner and access the official business partner tool kit.
- Schedule a vaccine event for your employees.
- Schedule a vaccine event/promotion for your customers/patrons.
- Share a Power the Comeback testimonial video or awareness ad (see below)
Frequently asked questions
We invite businesses taking the pledge by committing to one or more of the activities that will help power Colorado’s comeback:

- Promote information about the Colorado law that mandates paid time off to get the vaccine and recover from vaccine side effects.
- Provide incentives for employees to get vaccinated (e.g., cash bonuses, additional paid time off, etc.).
