Utahns 70 years and older
People 70 and older can receive the vaccine starting Monday, January 18. Contact your local health department to schedule an appointment or to find out when vaccination clinics will be held. You must schedule your appointment ahead of time. Do not just show up without an appointment, as each local health department may have a different process for registration. Please understand we have limited vaccines and that appointments will fill up quickly. It may take a few tries to get an appointment.
Our goal at the commission is to help you stay safe and healthy during the COVID-19 outbreak. Vaccine Tip sheet
What Does the Commission Do?
The Utah Commission on Aging is working to increase the understanding of the needs of Utah’s aging population and how to meet these needs. The UCOA studies and reports on the projected impact of the aging population on out social structure and on our government. Also, the UCOA identifies and recommends specific policies, procedures, and programs to respond to the needs of our aging population. Finally the UCOA facilitates coordination of the functions of both public and private entities concerned with our aging population.
