Uinta County began vaccinating Uinta County Residents that are 18 YEARS OLD OR OLDER, to prevent COVID-19 stating March 15, 2021. Currently, we are receiving large amounts of the Moderna vaccine from Federal suppliers. In addition, both Smith's and WalMart pharmacies are receiving doses of vaccine from the Federal Pharmacy Program, and are able to help us get out this important vaccine to help us stop the spread of COVID-19. ** Presently, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is under investigation due to 6 adverse reactions that were encountered in millions of doses previously given. Until a decision is made, our Johnson and Johnson vaccine clinics will be on hold.** Keep in mind that we are currently holding clinics for the Moderna vaccine, and will begin clinics for the Phizer vaccine approximately 4/30/21. If you are over the age of 16 and would like to be included in the Phizer clinics, see below. For those still interested in the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you do have the option to see what decisions are made.
For those without a computer or smartphone (or someone to help them register), we will accept call-in registrations. Due to limited staff, it is preferred that you register online if able. Evanston area residents please call 307-789-9203. For Bridger Valley residents please call 307-787-3800.
** Please note - Vaccine pre-registration is necessary to assure safe, and efficient vaccine distribution.
We will use Code Red first and then all local media sources (Uinta County Herald and K-9 Radio) as well as our social media Facebook page to publish when additional priority groups may register to receive the vaccine.
Please click on the Forms tab below to access the COVID-19 Vaccine Consent Form, Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Form, and information about V-Safe which is an app to be able to report any side-effects or reactions to the vaccine.

State Health Orders - Wyoming
Statewide Public Health Orders Extended Two More Weeks
COVID-19 has hit all of the United States hard, and in ways we didn’t think possible. We are all getting weary of the worry and concern for our neighbors and our families. Having empathy is a good thing, but as everyone knows, too much of a good thing can be hazardous to your health. The longer this public health threat is around, and the constant ups and downs within our County and State, the more we are likely to be overwhelmed.
It’s easy to say don’t let it get to you, but for some this is easier said than done. There is help in Uinta County if you just want to talk to someone that can help you sort it out. Mental Health providers are standing by to give you a confidential ear. You don’t have to handle this on your own, you don’t have to listen to other people’s ideas about this outbreak, you have a right to speak to someone who is objective and will listen if you will talk. We have compiled a list of Mental Health providers who will be there for you - today, and for as long as you need them. Just click on the word list and make a phone call to get started.
At the end of April, there will be an Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) that will be available through DFS. This is direct financial assistance for rent, utility, and internet payments & housing stability services. There is application assistance available - go to: dfs.wyo.gov/erap.
