It was very hard for our social media team to pull out the best highlights from today's COVID Community update with @AndrewPaviaMD but we gave it the old college try. Vaccines for kids 6 months to 4 years should be available early next week! Stay tuned for more info.

You can find more water safety tips and learn about other safety topics by visiting primarychildrens.org/safety.
Don’t Forget a Life Jacket. The National Park Service recommends wearing a Coast Guard approved life jacket anytime you’re on, near, or in the water for any water activity, a life jacket is always a safe bet.
Alcohol and Swimming Don’t Mix. If you shouldn’t drink and drive, you shouldn’t drink and dive. Period.
You’re Never too Old for Swimming Lessons. More than half of U.S. adults don’t know how to swim well enough to save their lives. “Enrolling in an adult swim class is a smart thing to do if you’ve never learned the basics – or if you’re looking to improve."
Appoint someone to be a “water watcher." “One of the biggest hazards to water safety is distraction. Appoint someone who won’t be looking at their phone or falling asleep on the shore. Think of it as a designated driver, but for water sports.”
In Open Water Don’t Dive-In to Save Someone. REACH, THROW, ROW, OR DON'T GO. Reach out to the person with any object they might be able to grab onto. Throw them a life jacket or something to help them float. If on a boat, use oars to row closer to reach or throw something to them
Know your surroundings. The sun may be scorching, but the lakes are still very cold. It doesn’t take long for swimmers to succumb to the effects of chilly water – causing cramps, shock, hypothermia and difficulty breathing.
Solo swimming is never a good idea. It might sound like fun to go for a peaceful dip in the pool or do a little night swimming on your own, but even if you’re the best swimmer in the world, you can’t always predict what might happen.
Being a Good Swimmer Isn’t a Guarantee of Safety. Too many overconfident swimmers drown because they’re more willing to take risks in the water. There are always going to be factors that are out of your control. For example, a storm can roll in and change the conditions quickly
As we head into #MemorialDay weekend, families will be flocking to Utah’s lakes, rivers, and reservoirs. However, before gassing up the boat, grabbing the swimsuits, towels and sunscreen, it’s critically important to remember water safety measures.
In 2020, Utah experienced 45 unintentional drownings, the highest in a decade, according to Utah Department of Health data. Over the last five years, an average of 33 Utahns have died from drowning--including adults. A majority of these deaths happen in open bodies of water.
COVID LATEST: As case count rise, Intermountain is hosting a COVID Community Update today at 1:30 pm, MT--live streamed on the Intermountain Facebook page. We will also address booster vaccines for 5 to 11-year-old children, which the CDC is expected to formally approve this week
