Utah (ABC4) – Utah’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout is picking up throughout the state. Vaccine eligibility is opening for different priority groups, and many Utahns are wondering when, where, and how they can register to get their vaccine.
Frontline healthcare workers, first responders, long-term care facility staff residents, and K-12 teachers were the first to receive their COVID-19 vaccines at the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021.
In early January, Utah Governor Spencer Cox announced Utah’s 70 and older population would be eligible to start getting vaccinated on January 18.
In February, Gov. Cox announced due to the state’s vaccine availability, COVID-19 vaccine eligibility would be made available to Utahns 65 through 69.
Vaccine eligibility for Utahns 18 and older with underlying medical conditions will open March 1.
ABC4 has compiled a list of Utah’s 13 health departments where residents can learn how to register and when they are eligible.
