COVID-19 Vaccine Providers in Utah

At this time, we cannot provide vaccine to everyone and most Utahns should expect to receive their vaccine through the state. There are many vaccine providers across Utah. If you can't find a vaccine appointment at U of U Health, we encourage you to schedule your appointment with another provider at vaccines.gov. If you need assistance, call the state’s COVID-19 Information Hotline: 1-800-456-7707.

What to Expect at Your Appointment

What to Bring

As a precaution, we require everyone to wear a face mask at all of our U of U Health locations. We also recommend wearing a short sleeve shirt so you can easily receive the vaccine in your upper arm.

During the Appointment

Please check in at the front desk when you arrive. You will need two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine scheduled at least 21-28 days apart for full protection.

We will schedule you for your second dose during your first appointment. You will also receive a vaccination card listing the date of your dose and type of vaccine you received. Please keep your vaccination card in a safe place and bring it with you to your second appointment.

After your vaccination, you will be asked to wait 15 minutes. During that time, you will be monitored for symptoms or allergic reactions. People with a history of severe allergic reactions will be asked to wait 30 minutes. Our health care staff will be available on-site to answer questions or provide care, if needed.

Vaccine Cost

COVID-19 vaccine will be given to everyone at no out-of-pocket cost. However, your insurance company will be billed an administrative fee to cover vaccination operations costs. For those without insurance coverage, assistance programs will cover the administrative fee. Nobody will be denied a vaccine if they can’t afford to pay.
