This might be due to the fact that there are a lot of kids in particular areas who are not eligible and bring the percentage down. Or there are less consultations or further to drive. Or some hesitancy to get the shot, particularly in locations where COVID-19 transmission is low.A breakdown of COVID-19 vaccine numbers by health departmentBelow are the percent vaccinated in each health department, from lowest to greatest, since Tuesday early morning, according to the vaccination map on coronavirus.utah.gov: Tri-County: 19.6% Tooele County: 21.4% Utah County: 21.5% Central Utah: 21.6% Bear River: 25.1% Weber-Morgan: 26% Southwest Utah: 26.8% Davis County: 27.2% Southeast Utah: 26.7% Wasatch County: 27.3% Salt Lake County: 29.1% San Juan: 32.1% Summit County: 43% Vaccine information by cityThe states vaccine information lets you drill down into even smaller sized areas on that very same page.
