UDOH: Less than 1% of Utah’s COVID-19 cases occurred after full vaccination “We have the tool to end the disruption and inconveniences of COVID-19 on our lives and the economy – vaccination. More than 186 million Americans have chosen to get vaccinated under the most intense safety monitoring in history. In Utah, more than 1.6 million Utahns have had at least one dose and 1.4 million are fully vaccinated. Nearly all COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are now among those who have chosen to not get vaccinated. Studies from across the globe continue to show the vaccines work. They are safe and effective. Serious side effects are rare. The benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks of getting the vaccine AND getting COVID-19 as a disease. Vaccination is a safer, more effective, and longer-lasting way to build immunity, including for those who have already been diagnosed with COVID. Vaccination is key to keeping our children in school and free from the disruptions to their learning and extracurricular activities that we experienced last school year. Choosing to get vaccinated will protect your family, our schools, and communities. We ask all Utahns to carefully consider getting vaccinated and to seek out credible information about the vaccines from their healthcare provider and reputable health organizations. Vaccinations are FREE and available to anyone 12 and older. There are hundreds of vaccine providers across the state. More information can be found at https://coronavirus.utah.gov/.”
