Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the state of Utah has been committed to providing Utahns with accurate, transparent, and up-to-date health information and recommendations so individuals can make informed decisions to protect their families, businesses, and our communities. Our goal is to keep Utahns safe, healthy, and working. Please visit https://coronavirus.utah.gov/vaccine/ for the most up to date information on the vaccine. Utah’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan will likely change as more vaccines become available, more people are vaccinated, and timelines become more clear. The amount of vaccines the state receives from the federal government will impact how quickly different groups of people have access to the vaccines.

The timeline for when these groups will be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine may change. Timing is dependent on how much vaccine the state receives and when the vaccine arrives in Utah.

Are COVID-19 vaccines safe? – https://coronavirus.utah.gov/vaccine-information/

COVID-19 vaccines are safe. Data from clinical trials showed the COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. The benefits of getting vaccinated far outweigh the risks of getting COVID-19. No steps are being skipped during the clinical trial and data review process for COVID-19 vaccines. Safety is a top priority. No matter how quickly COVID-19 vaccines are developed, they are being held to the same standards as other vaccines to make sure they are safe. Clinical trials of COVID-19 vaccines must first show they are safe and effective before any vaccine can be authorized or approved for use in the United States.
The known and potential benefits of a COVID-19 vaccine must outweigh the known and potential risks of the vaccine for use under what is known as an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
