[ARCHIVED] Public Health Vaccine Clinic Update

COVID Vaccine

As of 10 a.m. on Thursday, February 11, 2021, the Pottawattamie County Public Health (PCPH) COVID-19 vaccine clinic appointments are full. On February 10, 2021, PCPH announced three vaccine clinics for residents ages 65, and older and in less than 24 hours, all 3,300 COVID-19 vaccine appointments filled.

 

“We did the best we could to create a simple registration process. Despite the initial influx that bogged the system and the phone lines temporarily, 3,300 individuals registered for a vaccine in less than 24 hours,” said Matt Wyant with Pottawattamie County Public Health. “We hope to receive more vaccine in March so we can offer another set of clinics.”

 

In March, The State of Iowa will reevaluate the allocations to counties in Iowa.  According to the State’s dashboard (coronavirus.iowa.gov), 6,909 Pottawattamie County Residents have received the first dose of vaccine, and 4,489 have received the second dose. In Iowa, 182,642 individuals have received the first dose of the vaccine, and 99,978 have received the second dose.

 

As a reminder, over 30,000 Pottawattamie county residents meet the requirements for phase 1B. While this advancement is advantageous, the demand for the COVID-19 vaccine still exceeds our supply.

 

PCPH urges residents to remember the health protocols. Continue to wash your hands often, practice social distancing, wear a face mask when in public, disinfect surfaces regularly, and if you are sick, please stay home. Anyone who wants to be tested for COVID-19 should go to www.testiowa.com.
