SANDY, Utah — Several counties on the Wasatch Front made it a lot easier for people to get their COVID-19 vaccinations as demand began to slow.

Weber, Davis and Salt Lake Counties introduced walk-in options at specific locations.

“I didn’t want to wait until the summer,” said Heidi West.

West said getting the COVID-19 vaccine was important to her and she did not want to wait any longer.

“I wanted to have it done before then so I could go on trips and feel safe,” she said.

She scheduled an appointment but decided to get it sooner at the Mountain America Expo Center in Sandy after she heard about the walk-in opportunity.

“I’m the last one of all of my siblings to get vaccinated,” West said. “I have an appointment in two weeks, but I heard they were doing walk-ins, so I thought why not? I’ll bump it up. It’s good. I didn’t have to wait in line.”

Walk-in COVID-19 shots were made available at the expo center from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

“My whole family is vaccinated and I was the only one out of my household that was left,” said Miguel Zamora.

Zamora said he already had COVID-19, but he wanted to get vaccinated to make sure he doesn’t get sick again.

“They said to wait like 90 days,” he said. “My 90 days are up, so that’s why I came.”

People were in and out of the expo center in 20 minutes, with their second shots already booked. The only waiting was that 15 minutes after to make sure the vaccine recipient did not have an adverse reaction.

Ryna Joseph, 16, started off at the Maverik Center for her vaccine Monday morning. Because of her age, they sent her to the Expo Center for the Pfizer vaccine.

“If you’re only 16, you can get the Pfizer, not the Moderna,” she said.

She did not have to reschedule because of vaccine availability for walk-ins.

“I wanted to be able to just get it over with and be a little bit safer,” she said.

Weber and Davis Counties have also extended their hours for vaccinations and now offer walk-ins at their main vaccination sites.

More information can be found at those health department websites.

How do I prevent it?

The CDC has some simple recommendations, most of which are the same for preventing other respiratory illnesses or the flu:

  • Avoid close contact with people who may be sick
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. Always wash your hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
