Vaccine Shortage Prompts Holiday Clinic Closure

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah. — Many would think the vaccination clinic closed today in honor of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., but the closure was actually due to a shortage of vaccines.

According to the Summit County Health Department website, the county is currently receiving 300-400 vaccine doses per week from the state.

A post on the Summit County Facebook page discussed the shortage: “There appears to be some confusion regarding the County’s decision to close the vaccine clinic tomorrow for the holiday. To be clear: the decision to close is a direct result of a vaccine shortage.”

The clinic will resume vaccinations by appointment only on Tuesday, and residents can call the Summit County COVID-19 Hotline 435-333-0050 with questions from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
