Utah catching up on vaccine appointments postponed by storm | Politics

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – The Southwest Utah Health Department announced plans to postpone dates for coronavirus vaccinations that were delayed by a winter storm last week.

The storm had an impact on the delivery of vaccines to clinics outside the state, reports KSTU-TV.

The Southwest Utah Health Department announced that the February 18 dates have been postponed to February 22, 25, and 27.

The Weber-Morgan Health Department has also postponed the February 22nd to February 18th.

Utah residents 65 and older can now receive vaccines and should check with local health authorities for appointment availability.

To date, Utah has distributed more than 607,000 vaccines, with more than 83,000 in the past week.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, which will improve in two to three weeks. Some – especially older adults and people with existing health problems – can develop more serious illnesses such as pneumonia and death.
