Vaccine appointments are now available for all Utahns 16 years old and older. The Tooele County Health Department is currently providing the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, which has been approved for use only for those 18 years old and older. If you are 16 or 17 years old, you can only receive the Pfizer vaccine.
As a reminder, you no longer have to exclusively get the vaccine at your local health department – you can get the vaccine at a local pharmacy, from a healthcare provider, or even a health department in a different county.
To ensure adequate supply, the Tooele County Health Department advises that you get your second dose through the same provider as your first dose.
