Butler County Public Health will now begin taking names of anyone over age 18 who wants a Covid19 vaccine. Please call 319-267-2934 to add your name to our list.

The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) issued a press release stating on March 8, 2021 vaccine providers can now vaccinate people 64 and younger with medical conditions that are or may be an increased risk of severe illness for COVID19. Local health departments did not know IDPH was going to add the 64 and younger people until the press release was issued and we have received no guidance on how we will accomplish this. We are only getting 300 doses of vaccine per week and we are still vaccinating people over 65 and people in the Tier 1 group.  At this time, our priority will remain people over 65 and people in Tier 1, which includes first responders (fire, child welfare social workers and law enforcement), PK-12 school staff, daycare providers and early childhood educators.  We hope the amount of vaccine coming into Butler County will increase soon and we will be able to expand our priorities. Please be patient as we work as quickly as we can to get people vaccinated. Thank you!

IDPH Media Release

(Des Moines, IA) The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) announces the launch of Vaccinate.Iowa.gov, a new website that provides information about vaccine priority populations and eligibility, resources available for Iowans age 65 and older, and answers to frequently asked questions about vaccine. The site also hosts a locator tool where users can enter their zip code to find vaccine providers near them. Once a provider is selected, appointment scheduling will be done through the provider’s website or scheduling platform. Information on the site will be updated regularly and site content can be translated into multiple languages.

To help older Iowans navigate the scheduling process, IDPH is partnering with 211 to provide a dedicated team of vaccine navigators who will schedule appointments for Iowans age 65 and older who are unable to do so because of technology barriers. This 211 vaccine navigator service will be available starting the week of March 8.

As of today, Iowa has administered 626,947 vaccines. More vaccine administration information is available here.

We encourage Iowans to remain patient as more vaccine arrives in the weeks and months ahead. It is also critical to continue practicing the mitigation measures that can slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

  • Wear a mask or face covering
  • Practice social distancing with those outside your household
  • Clean your hands frequently with soap and water
  • Stay home if you feel sick
  • Get tested if you are exposed to, or have symptoms of COVID-19
  • Get a COVID-19 vaccine when you are eligible
