PITU Coronavirus Vaccination Plan

The Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah continues to monitor COVID-19.
We continue to do all we can to protect our employees, Tribal Members and our patients/clients.

Please review all of the information on this page, and then call the nearest FourPoints Health clinic to schedule your vaccine.

 

Updated Vaccination Guidelines

All FourPoints Health clinics are offering all three types of vaccines (including pediatric Pfizer). As a reminder, Pfizer has been fully approved by the FDA for 16 year olds and up. Pfizer is also approved under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for youth ages 12-15 as well as for ages 5-11 (with a pediatric dosage). Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Jansen continue under Emergency Use Authorization for 18 years and up only.

A third dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is authorized under EUA for individuals at least 18 years of age who are immunocompromised. This dose must be administered at least 28 days following the first two doses of this vaccine. This is not considered a booster dose.

Booster doses are now approved for those 18 and over who received the Johnson & Johnson/Jansen vaccine at least two months ago, or for those 18 and over who received two doses of the Moderna vaccine at least six months prior, or for those 16 or older who received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months prior. Booster doses can be “mix and match”, meaning you can get whichever vaccine you choose regardless of what vaccine you initially received.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

Q: If I already had COVID-19 and recovered, am I protected by natural immunity, or do I still need to get a COVID-19 vaccine? 
A: Yes, you should get a COVID-19 vaccine. The current recommendation is that all individuals get vaccinated against COVID-19 regardless of if you’ve had the virus or not. There is a recommended wait time of three months from your positive test or more than two weeks with no symptoms. 

Q: Can I choose which COVID-19 vaccine I get?
A:
If you are 18 or older, yes. For individuals ages 5-17, the only approved vaccine is the Pfizer.
