COVID-19 Vaccine Available for Patients 16 & Older

University of Utah Health, along with several health systems in Utah, have been asked by the state to help distribute COVID-19 vaccines to select patients within our health system.

We are currently offering COVID-19 vaccine to U of U Health patients who live in Utah and are age 16 or older. Learn how to schedule an appointment at one of our vaccine clinic locations.

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. Go to VaccineFinder.org. If you need assistance, call the state’s COVID-19 Information Hotline: 1-800-456-7707.

Vaccine Appointment Instructions

Keep in mind that appointments may fill up quickly due to the limited supply of vaccine. Appointment availability will be based on the number of vaccine doses we receive each week. We will open up additional appointments as we get more vaccine. We thank you for your patience during this process.

Scheduling Your Appointment

Eligible patients may schedule their vaccine appointment at their earliest convenience. We request that appointments be scheduled through MyChart due to potential long wait times by phone. Follow our MyChart instructions to schedule your vaccine appointment.

Anyone needing scheduling assistance may call the hotline at 801-587-0712 or (toll free) 844-745-9325. Vaccinations will be available by appointment only.

What to Expect at Your Appointment

What to Bring

As a precaution, you must wear a face mask at the vaccine clinic. 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’ll be directed by one of our staff members to the vaccine clinic. If you chose to get the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, you will need two doses of the vaccine scheduled at least 21-28 days apart for full protection. The Janssen (Johnson & Johnson company) vaccine only requires one dose to protect you.

If you received the PFizer/BioNTech vaccine, 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. For patients who get the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, 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.
