See below for some recent guidance from the SCHD on the next progression estimations for the COVID-19 Vaccine.
We will continue to share information as it becomes available and look forward to vaccinating our patients as soon as we are able when future phases are released!
Iowa’s Infectious Disease Advisory Council released its Phase 1B guidance. Phase 1B is NOT expected to begin until it is announced by the Iowa Department of Public Health (likely no later than February 1). Due to the limited vaccine supply, the State of Iowa will not be making changes to the age criteria for Phase 1B set by IDAC at this time.
Reminder: we are still in Phase 1A: healthcare workers + long-term care residents.
