Summit County now Booking Vaccine Appointments for Residents 70+
Summit County, Utah. — On Feb. 12, the Summit County Health Department announced that all county residents ages 70 and up who had pre-registered for the Covid-19 vaccine could begin scheduling appointments to receive their doses.
“If you or someone you know is 70 or older and has not received an email or a phone call from Summit County to schedule their vaccine appointment, please call the Summit County COVID-19 Hotline at 435-333-0050 to register,” the county said.
Those eligible for the vaccine who have not yet pre-registered can do so online, but those without access to email or having difficulty with the registration process can call the hotline. (The hotline is closed on Feb. 15 in honor of Presidents Day.)
The county had administered 3,431 first doses of the vaccine as of Feb. 9. Of those, 1,325 were Summit County residents ages 70 and older receiving their first dose. The Summit County Health Department reported that hundreds more in this eligible age group are scheduled to receive their first doses in February and March.
“Summit County ranks among the top three health districts in the state for the number of vaccines given per capita,” the county said. “Thanks in part to the efficient infrastructure and facilities donated by the Utah Film Studio, the Summit County COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic has the capability to quickly scale operations based on vaccine supply.”
