COVID-19 vaccinations available throughout the region
Central Utah Public Health is continuing their effort to offer COVID vaccinations to all who qualify. On Nov. 16, vaccines were being administered by the CUPH staff at the Mt. Pleasant fire station, and just before the station opened its doors to the public at 2 p.m. cars were lined up on Main Street to enter the fire station drive-thru vaccination site.
At the Mt Pleasant fire station, Jennifer Lamb of the Central Utah Public Health Department reported that vaccines were available for everyone 5 years of age and up, regardless of their current vaccination status. So, first-time vaccines, second vaccines, vaccine booster shots and Pfizer vaccines for kids were all being administered at the Mt. Pleasant fire station drive-thru clinic. The Mt. Pleasant site is open every Tuesday from 2 p.m. until they complete the vaccination of those who registered.
Children 5 to 17 years old can only receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. You can visit http://vaccinefinder.org to find a location that offers the Pfizer vaccine. The state also has information on vaccines for kids ages 5 to 17 at http://coronavirus.utah.gov/vaccine/distribution, with links to vaccination sites and health care providers for all ages.
Find out how you can pre-register yourself and your family for vaccinations at one of the 12 vaccination sites throughout central Utah by visiting http://centralutahpublichealth.org.
