Colorado Gov. Jared Polis opens the shipping box containing the state's first shipment of COVID-19 vaccine at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Dec. 14, 2020, in east Denver.

Today on Colorado Edition: We get the latest on the vaccine rollout in Colorado and explore what benefits we’re beginning to see due to an increasingly vaccinated population. We also take a look at how traumatic events can impact first responders, and even people who weren’t physically at the scene of a traumatic event. And with the vaccine rollout on track, we look at the return of summer camps in Colorado. And KUNC’s film critic gives us a review of The Father, which received six Oscar nominations and features Best Actor winner Anthony Hopkins.

Today’s guests include: Erica Breunlin and Michael Booth, reporters for the Colorado Sun; and Dr. Mariya Dvoskina, a police and public safety psychologist. Today’s show features reporting from KUNC reporter Matt Bloom; and we hear a review from KUNC film critic Howie Movshovitz, who teaches film and television at CU Denver.
