Utah Gov. Spencer Cox announced Thursday that all Utah residents ages 16 and older will be able to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine starting next Wednesday, March 24. This is a jump from Cox’s previous plans to open the vaccine in early April.
On March 24, Utahns who are 16 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

In his announcement, Cox said the sign-up process for most areas will begin Wednesday, but the vaccine distribution plans are up to local county health departments — and some have chosen to open registration sign-ups even sooner.
Here’s what we know so far about when you can sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine in each health district. You can get a vaccine in any county in the state regardless of where you live.

How To Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus
COVID-19 coronaviruses transmitted from person to person. It is a virus that is similar to the common cold and the flu. So, to prevent it from spreading:
- Wash hands frequently and thoroughly, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
- Wear a mask.
- Don’t touch your face.
- Keep children and those with compromised immune systems away from someone who is coughing or sneezing (in this instance, at least six feet)
- If there is an outbreak near you, practice social distancing (stay at home, instead of going to the movies, sports events, or other activities.)
- Get a flu shot.
- Get vaccinated.
