COVID-19 Vaccine Update 1/13/2021
posted by Public Health
Iowa is still in Phase 1A.
However what was recently released were the recommendations from the Iowa Disease Advisory Council that defined what Phase 1B was.
“The Iowa Disease Advisory Council has released their recommendations for 1B priority populations to receive the COVID-19 vaccine today.
Based on the expected vaccine allocations for Iowa, Phase 1B will focus on individuals who are age 75 and over, as well as other high risk populations. This includes Iowans who are most vulnerable to exposure to COVID-19 or high-risk for illness as the result of a COVID-19 infection, with a significant focus on equity. Vaccination of Phase 1B populations will begin no later than the first of February, and will take several weeks to complete.
