All Utahns ages 16 and older can get the vaccine.
Individuals who are younger than 18 need to be accompanied by their legal guardian when receiving the vaccine. Those who are younger than 18 need to receive the Pfizer brand. Please look for events titled “16+.” More appointments will continually be added as the vaccine supply is replenished. It is projected to take through May or June to get vaccines to everyone who wants one but the state is working to expedite distribution as much as possible.
Vaccine appointments are no longer restricted within the county you live in. Those who are eligible may schedule an appointment anywhere the vaccine is available. Utah County Health Department has an online appointment scheduling system. Residents can receive text alerts regarding vaccine availability and who is eligible for each phase by texting UCHEALTH to 888777 (enter 888777 in the recipient field, with UCHEALTH in message – see image below). Notifications will be sent letting you know when appointments are available. If you choose not to receive text alerts, you may check the scheduling system periodically for new appointments. If you need more assistance or lack internet availability, please call the Utah County Health Department COVID Help Line at 801-851-HELP (4357).
If you’ve had COVID-19 in the last 90 days, you are strongly encouraged to wait 90 days before receiving the vaccine. You cannot be given the COVID-19 vaccine if you have had any other VACCINE (Shingles, Flu, Pneumonia, Hepatitis, etc.) within 2-weeks prior.
A separate process is in place for K-12 school staff. Vaccine coordination is being managed through school districts and their schools. Staff should get information through their place of employment.
