Vaccines now available for:
Healthcare workers, long-term care facility staff and residents, first responders, and K-12 teachers and school staff.
Contact your local health department or school district to schedule your vaccination. All local health departments are experiencing a high volume of calls and website traffic as demand for the COVID-19 vaccine is high. Please understand we can only distribute as many vaccines as we receive each week, and that appointments are filling up quickly. Everyone who wants the vaccine will get it over time. Thanks for your patience as it may take a few tries to get an appointment.
The COVID-19 vaccination is an important tool to help stop the pandemic.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the state of Utah has been committed to providing Utahns with accurate, transparent, and up-to-date health information and recommendations so individuals can make informed decisions to protect their families, businesses, and our communities. Our goal is to keep Utahns safe, healthy, and working.
How we get back to normal
When the vaccine is available, every Utahn who is able to should get vaccinated for COVID-19. If as many people as possible get vaccinated and we continue to follow health recommendations, we will win the fight against this virus.
Phased approach to vaccination
We want it to be easy for everyone to get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as large quantities are available. However, we only have a limited supply of the vaccine right now. This means that policymakers had to develop plans to make sure those who are most at-risk get the vaccine first and that vaccines are distributed in a fair, ethical, and transparent way.
The Utah Department of Health organized a workgroup made up of health professionals throughout the state (The Utah Prioritization Workgroup) to develop recommendations for how to prioritize vaccination groups on the state and local level. Their final recommendations are based on state and local data and need, vaccine storage capability of facilities, and guidance from the CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
More vaccines will be available over the next few weeks and months. We will continue to provide additional updates about vaccine distribution information when more doses of the vaccine become available.
