Vaccination is still the best way to prevent severe illness from COVID-19, but there are also effective medicines to treat it now. Treatment works best when it's given within the first few days of your illness. Get tested right away if you have symptoms so you can qualify for treatments which have been shown to prevent hospitalization and death from COVID-19. If you test positive for COVID-19, talk to a doctor or healthcare provider about treatments that may work best for you.
All Utahns ages 6 months and older can get vaccinated.

Have a symptom?
