Starting Monday, any individual in Utah who is 50 years or older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. In addition to previously announced medical conditions, the vaccine will also be available to individuals who have:
• a BMI of 30 or higher
• chronic kidney disease
• diabetes (either Type I or Type II).
As a reminder, you no longer have to exclusively get the vaccine at your local health department – you can get the vaccine at a local pharmacy, from a healthcare provider, or even a health department in a different county. You can locate a vaccine provider at https://coronavirus.utah.gov/vaccine-distribution/ or https://vaccinefinder.org.
