SCHEDULE YOUR VACCINE

  • Important Reminders:
    • Minors; now that the FDA’s research determined the Pfizer COVID vaccine is safe and effective for 12-15 year olds, and the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted to back this, we have started vaccinating this population. Please note that minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at their appointment.

    • Vaccine brands; we cannot guarantee which brand of vaccine you will receive at your appointment; brand availability at each site varies and may change regularly.

    • We CANNOT vaccinate you if you:
      • have had passive antibody therapy to treat COVID within 90 days
      • are currently in isolation for COVID infection

    • Second doses; we will automatically schedule your second dose at the time of your first dose. If you need to change your second dose appointment, you can log in to your account or call 385-468-7468 beginning 7 days before that second-dose appointment. You CAN now receive a second dose from us if you received a first dose (Pfizer or Moderna) from a different provider.
When and where can I be vaccinated?
Safety and Efficacy

In the United States, there are many steps in place to make sure vaccines are safe and effective. These steps include clinical trials and reviews by many independent scientists, medical professionals, and public health experts. The COVID vaccine has undergone these rigorous steps, just like all vaccines; no steps were skipped or rushed.

Cost

There is no cost to you to be vaccinated. If you have health insurance, vaccine providers (including Salt Lake County Health Department) may bill your insurance a vaccine administration fee. If you do not have insurance, you will not be charged.

Precautions

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, if you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.

Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.

If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, find one.

What if I lose my COVID-19 vaccination card?

To request your own immunization record, you must be 18 years or older. If you are requesting the record of a minor under 18, you must be the child's parent or legal guardian at the time of the request.

Immunization records are protected, confidential records so you must prove your identity before you may receive the record.

You can request an immunization record four ways:

  1. From your healthcare provider.
    Most healthcare providers in Utah are connected to the Utah Statewide Immunization Information System (USIIS). Contact your provider and ask if they can give you an Official USIIS Personal Utah Immunization Record. If your provider does not participate in USIIS, they can print your immunization record from their own medical record system.

  2. Through the Docket mobile app.

  3. From the Utah Department of Health's Utah Statewide Immunization Information System (USIIS)
    Submit a completed, notarized USIIS Immunization Record Request form to:
    USIIS
    PO Box 142012
    Salt Lake City, UT 84114-2012

    Email: immunize@utah.gov
    Fax: 801-538-9440

  4. From the Salt Lake County Health Department
    Complete a medical record release form (formulario de solicitud médica), print the completed form, sign it, and bring it along with photo identification to one of our immunization clinic locations. Note that we CANNOT release immunization records over the phone or over email because we are required by law to verify your identity.
How is the COVID-19 Vaccine Distributed in an Equitable Manner?

Communities of color and other underserved populations have carried higher infection, hospitalization, and death rates than the general public due to historical and current health inequities. 

Salt Lake County is working hard to correct these inequities and ensure all county residents have access to the COVID-19 vaccine. 

This document summarizes the work conducted by Salt Lake County and partners since the vaccine arrived in Utah in early January 2021. We plan on continuing these efforts, evolving our strategies and approaches as informed by data and partners, until vaccination efforts are complete.
