DAVIS COUNTY, Utah — Davis County residents ages 70 and older will start receiving the COVID-19 vaccine on Jan. 19, officials say.
Beginning Friday, residents in the age group can CLICK HERE to make online appointments to receive the vaccine. Residents only need an email address and can schedule an appointment for up to two people.
The county has set aside 75 percent of its weekly vaccine doses for the 70+ age group, and hope to vaccinate 3,000 residents next week. The remaining 25 percent of the doses will be set aside for healthcare workers, first responders and K-12 school staff.
“There are more than 25,000 Davis County residents to be served in this age group,” said Trevor Warner, Communications Manager for the Davis County Health Department. “The reality is that these appointments will fill up very quickly and a person may have to try back week after week to get an appointment. We’re asking for everyone’s patience in this process as it will take many weeks of clinics for us to get to everyone.”
The drive-thru mass vaccinations will be held at the Legacy Events Center in Farmington. Those who arrive on foot or via other transportation methods will be accommodated.
During the opening week, vaccinations will be given on Tuesday, Jan. 18, Friday, Jan. 22 and Saturday, Jan. 23 between 10 a.m.and 5 p.m.
