    WHAT ABOUT BOOSTER SHOTS?

    Booster shots are available. Learn more.

    WHAT ABOUT BREAKTHROUGHS?

    COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing infection, serious illness, and death. Most people who get COVID-19 are unvaccinated. However, since vaccines are not 100% effective at preventing infection, some people who are fully vaccinated will still get COVID-19. An infection of a fully vaccinated person is referred to as a “breakthrough infection.” Learn more.

    MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY TREATMENT

    Uintah Basin Healthcare began offering monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19 patients on December 4, 2020. Currently, both monoclonal antibody therapies (Bamlanivimab – developed by Eli Lilly and Casirivimab/Imdevimab – developed by Regeneron) have been authorized under a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). Scientists have found that this intravenous drug may limit the amount of virus in the body for higher risk patients with COVID-19 who take the drug soon after symptom onset, with the goal of avoiding hospitalization.

    The drugs are in limited supply and are monitored closely by hospital staff in coordination with Utah Hospital Association and Utah Department of Health. To learn if Monoclonal Antibody Treatment is right for you, talk with your doctor. A doctor’s order is required.

    UNITE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19

    This pandemic is threatening the health of our community, and the viability of our economy. We ask that you unite with us to fight back. 

    Take preventative measures to lower the number of cases in our community.

    1. Get vaccinated: Unvaccinated patients account for 87% of Covid hospitalizations in the last two months at UBMC. Vaccines are safe and effective. We plead for every Utahn who is able to choose to get vaccinated for COVID-19. If as many people as possible get vaccinated and we continue to follow health recommendations, we will win this fight against this virus. 
      1. Learn more about vaccine safety at https://coronavirus.utah.gov/vaccine
      2. Learn about vaccine locations/times at www.ubh.org/covid-19-information
    2. Wash your hands: Wash often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you’ve been in a public space, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
    3. Stay 6 feet away from others: Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick in your home. Maintain 6 feet between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.
    4. Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces: Avoid crowds and indoor spaces that do not offer fresh air from the outdoors as much as possible.
    5. Cover coughs and sneezes: Cough/sneeze into your mask and replace mask, or cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow. Immediately wash hands.
    6. Clean and disinfect: Clean high touch surfaces daily such as doorknobs, light switches, phones, keyboards, toilets, etc.
    7. Monitor your health daily: Be alert for symptoms and stay home if you are sick. Follow CDC guidance if COVID symptoms develop. View testing information at www.ubh.org/covid-19-information.
    • While COVID-19 Financial Relief offers have expired, we will continue to offer prompt pay and uninsured discounts. We understand there are a large number of people in our community that have suffered job loss and are having financial difficulty. We will continue to work with our patients in this position to help find solutions. Contact a UBH Patient Financial Advocate by calling 435-725-2060, Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM.
