Local Health Team Prepares for COVID-19 Vaccine Release
With the first two COVID-19 vaccines anticipated to be approved and released this month, the state of Iowa has announced plans for distribution. In phase one, the vaccine is to be offered to healthcare personnel and to residents of long-term care facilities. Some areas in the state may receive a limited supply of vaccine as early as the week of December 13, with increased allocations in later weeks. Local health officials are prepared to distribute, once a supply is received.
