Latter-Day Saints Leaders Urge Utah Residents To Get Vaccinated
Even with a renewed effort to get more people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 — including bringing former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Richard Carmona on board to lead it — Arizona is still in the lower end of residents who have achieved that designation.
But our neighbor to the north — Utah — has an even lower percentage.
Last month, that caused Utah leaders in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to call for the use of masks in public meetings when social distancing isn’t possible, and they also “urge[d] individuals to be vaccinated.”
