“Just keep eyes and ears out to see if anything unusual was going on we would report it up to them,” Captain Jeffery Dallin Belnap says.
“Since Jan. 15, our Utah National Guard troops have served in Washington, D.C. with distinction. Now it’s time to bring them home as we need their help distributing COVID-19 vaccinations throughout the state. We’re grateful for the willingness of these dedicated men and women to serve whenever and wherever they are needed,” says Gov. Cox.
As the state prepares for more vaccines to arrive, mass vaccine distribution could require assistance from the Utah National Guard.
“We do not have enough to go around for people who want to get the vaccine and can’t even get an appointment” hopefully the more vaccine we get coming into the state we will be able to open that up to other people,” Charla Haley with the Utah Department of Health says.
Officials say Thursday that more soldiers are scheduled to return home for D.C..
