Where to get a vaccine in Utah for 12 to 15 year olds



SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — More places are offering to give the COVID-19 vaccine to kids ages 12 to 15 in Utah.

Several local health departments say you can sign your child up for the first dose this week or early next.

While officially, the Salt Lake County Health Department plans to begin offering the Pfizer vaccine to kids ages 12 and older starting on Monday, you could get it sooner. Parents who come to one of the county health department clinics Thursday, Friday or Saturday looking for a teen vaccine will not be turned away, health officials said.

The Davis County Health Department says those appointments are available Thursday and Friday, and the Utah County Health Department says Friday. Parents in the Weber-Morgan Health Department’s area of coverage can begin to sign up their teens right away.

The Tri-County Health Department in eastern Utah started vaccinating that age group Wednesday night.

CVS Pharmacies is offering the vaccine for 12-15-year-olds starting today.

In all of these places, parental or legal guardian consent is required, and children must be accompanied by an adult.
