COVID-19 Vaccine Update: K-12 School Staff Can Now Register
SOUTHWEST UTAH – K-12 teachers and school staff can now get the COVID-19 vaccine by registering at swuhealth.org/covid-vaccine to set up an appointment at their nearest clinic.
The Southwest Utah Public Health Department (SWUPHD) will continue vaccinating healthcare workers and first responders as K-12 school staff join the eligible priority groups. Vaccinations will be open to the general public in the near future beginning with people over 70 years of age.
As we see COVID-19 case numbers, hospitalizations, and deaths increase after the holidays in our area, we continue to encourage all residents to get vaccinated when able and continue to protect your vulnerable loved ones by maintaining distancing, wearing masks when within 6 feet, keeping hands washed, and staying home if sick.
The mission of the Southwest Utah Public Health Department is to protect the community’s health through the promotion of wellness and the prevention of disease. Visit our website at www.swuhealth.org
