Governor’s Office: Utah Anticipates Opening Vaccines To All Adults On April 1
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Gov. Spencer Cox’s office said the state anticipates opening COVID-19 vaccines to all adults on April 1.
The statement from Cox’s office was released Tuesday night. The eligibility changes would come in anticipation of the state’s mask mandate ending April 10 under a bill passed by the Utah Legislature.
“Once it became clear that the Legislature planned to end the mask mandate immediately, and with a veto proof majority, our administration worked with them to push the date back to get as many people vaccinated as possible,” spokesperson Jennifer Napier-Pearce said. “It’s important to note that the mask mandate will continue after April 10 in schools and for large gatherings. Also, businesses can still require masks. And of course, every individual can choose to wear a mask. We anticipate opening up vaccine eligibility to every adult in the state on April 1 and will likely have 1.5 million first doses in the state by April 10.”
Over 1 million vaccines have already been distributed to Utah, and 319,127 residents have been fully vaccinated.
