That does not mean that there is no longer any way to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
“We’re not done giving vaccines yet,” said Brian Cowan, director of the Department of Health. “The supply has caught up with the demand and we are going over with other providers to offer several places where our residents can get a chance.”
The Dee Event Center at WSU was the main vaccination site in Weber County. The last clinic there is tentatively scheduled for June 15, and bi-weekly clinics monitored by a church health department in Morgan County are also being closed.
Last Tuesday, the health department at its headquarters at 477 23rd Street in Ogden started offering vaccinations and these are continuing. The department will also offer vaccinations on the first Monday and third Friday of each month at Morgan City Hall, 90 W. Young St. Call 801-399-7250 to schedule an appointment at either location.
Here are other vaccination options:
The last planned clinics in Dee before they leave there are Tuesday, 8th June from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Friday, June 11th,
- from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and June 15 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
- on Historic 25th Street on Saturday and June 12th, daily from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. No appointment is required.

Lori Buttars, spokeswoman for the health department, said vaccinations are no longer happening at the same pace as they used to be. However, she was satisfied with the numbers that were shot and said the numbers were “very, very good” in some age groups, typically older populations.
According to the Utah Department of Health, 116,521 people in Weber and Morgan counties have received at least one dose of vaccine and 95,631 people are fully vaccinated. People aged 12 and over can be vaccinated.
The COVID-19 threat in the Weber district is still in the medium risk phase, but has decreased significantly. The county’s 14-day case rate per 100,000 population was 155.26, up from nearly 1,163.6 on December 10 late last year, according to figures released on Thursday.
Cowan noted the help of community leaders, Weber State University officials, many volunteers, the Utah National Guard, and others in the vaccination effort here.
