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
If you or someone you know had their names on multiple waiting lists for the #COVID19 Vaccine and they have already received it, please contact the places your name was on and help others receive their vaccine!
Booster Shot appointments have been scheduled for all those receiving their first dose of vaccine on February 2nd, 5th or 6th. If you have not received a call to scheduled your booster appointment, please call our office at 319-267-2934. Please have the date of your first vaccine available.
Because of delays in vaccine shipment due to the bad weather across much of the United States, we are unable to schedule any more First Dose Clinics until we receive more vaccine.
We are making changes on scheduling for future clinics and we will post that information here as soon as we have everything finalized.
Thank you for being patient with us. We are working very hard to get this vaccine to the community as fast as possible.
