'Beginning Of The End': Vaccines Delivered To Some Utah Hospitals; Logan Regional's Coming Soon

The first shipments of COVID-19 vaccinations have been delivered to Utah Valley Hospital and the LDS Hospital, and Logan Regional Hospital will be following suit soon — perhaps even by Thursday.“We’re working on a distribution plan right now,” said Sarah Fitzgerald with Logan Regional. “We could be getting it to our caregivers as early as Saturday or even next Monday, just depending on when the vaccine actually gets here, and so that’s awesome news for us. We’re super, super excited about that.”

The news was described as “a light at the end of the tunnel” and “the beginning of the end” by Dr. Eddie Stenehjem, an Intermountain Healthcare infectious diseases physician, in a press conference on Monday. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
