Dear *|FNAME|* *|LNAME|*,

We’re so glad you’re taking a minute to read our monthly newsletter. Our goal is to share IMPORTANT, HELPFUL, and FUN information each month. The Davis County Website has additional information to help keep you informed.

COVID-19 Vaccines

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recently visited and inspected the Davis County Drive-through Mass Vaccination Clinic at the Legacy Events Center in Farmington. They told the state that this facility and its vaccination system is the best one they have seen in the nation. Thank you Davis County Health Department! 

We continue to offer the Pfizer, 2-dose vaccine to ages 16+ at the drive-through clinic Monday - Saturday at Legacy Events Center in Farmington. For more information and to schedule appointments use the links below.

Other vaccine providers in Davis County and throughout the state can be found at http://vaccinefinder.org/.

The Health Department is working hard to administer all the quantities of vaccine given to them. Not a single dose goes unused or wasted. The Health Director also credits the County Information Systems department that wrote the software used for creating appointments. The Legacy Events Center, Facilities, Sheriff’s Office, Commission, Finance and other departments have all worked together in the massive effort to protect our residents.

Fraud Alert
We've received reports of individuals reproducing and presenting these mask exemption cards with the state of Utah seal on them to businesses and schools. These are FAKE. The state of Utah, UDOH, and local health departments do NOT provide mask exemption cards. Mask exemptions and how to obtain them are outlined in the public health orders here: Statewide COVID-19 Restrictions and here (schools): School Face Mask Order.
