COVID-19 Vaccine

Quad Cities COVID-19 Coalition
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dec. 21, 2020

Scott and Rock Island counties have received limited amounts of COVID-19 vaccine in the last week. These initial doses have been given to frontline healthcare workers with high-risk and frequent exposure to COVID-19 patients.

As more vaccine becomes available in our community, vaccinations will expand to additional healthcare workers and then other groups identified as priority populations by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and our state health departments, as well as Iowa’s Infectious Disease Advisory Committee.

At this time, we still are in the beginning stages of the vaccination of healthcare workers in the community. Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as Iowa and Illinois Departments of Public Health, we will ensure that healthcare workers in our community receive their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine before moving to the next priority populations. While recommendations are being made at the federal level for how to proceed with groups further down the priority list, we expect it to take a number of weeks to move through this initial priority group and onto the next.

Quad Citians are urged to wait for more information from the Quad Cities COVID-19 Coalition and both local health departments. Information will be issued through traditional media, both health departments’ social media and website pages, and togetherqc.com. Until vaccine becomes more widely available and we ask you to make arrangements to get the vaccine, there is no need to call your healthcare provider, pharmacist, hospital, or local health department right now.

Please remember to wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands often and learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines:

CDC

CDC is aware of a healthcare worker who reported anaphylaxis, a serious allergic reaction, after being given Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine. Anaphylaxis is a rare event following vaccination and CDC is evaluating the case.

CDC and public health experts prepared for a side effect like this after reports of anaphylaxis were made in England. Appropriate medical treatment for severe allergic reactions must be immediately available in the event of an anaphylactic reaction occurs.

Public health experts and CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System quickly detected the case, demonstrating that the vaccine safety monitoring program is working as planned, with the ability to rapidly detect and evaluate adverse events. As COVID-19 vaccine is administered in the US., there may be significant adverse events or clusters of adverse events reported. CDC will continue to be vigilant in monitoring the safety of COVID-19 vaccines and will be transparent in its communications with the public.

Shout out to the workers doing the COVID-19 testing at the QCCA Expo Center today. I was in line for about an hour; there were a lot of people. Staff was very professional and patient and answered all of my questions. Keep up the good work!!!!!
Just wondering why you haven't updated your numbers on your website since July 9th?
Was there a report on positive cases today (May 24th)?
Would working from home as a contact tracer/tally taker be a possibility?
Where are the cooling centers located in Rock Island County?
***Update ***on continued unacceptable [email protected] Rock Island County Health Department the employee who came forward about the things going on has now been fired. So that’s how your dealing with things? Fire the one who knows all the information and get rid of her instead of the supervisor that has this behavior!!! Great job Rock Island County Health Dept. Once again shame on you. What a disgrace😡😡😡 The ones covering this up... your future doesn’t look to bright😉
