January 13, 2021 10:47am
The transition into providing COVID vaccines to the Phase 1-B populations will begin no later than the 1st of February, according to information released on Tuesday by the Iowa Department of Public Health.
According to IDPH, completion of the current Phase 1-A will require approximately 300-thousand to 400-thousand vaccine doses. To date, Iowa has been allocated approximately 226-thousand doses. The Department of Public Health is monitoring allocation data and utilization rates, as well as engaging in discussions with healthcare providers to identify challenges with administration or uptake.
Due to the current and short-term projections for vaccine allocation for the state, Phase 1-B will focus on individuals age 75 and older, as well as other high-risk populations, meatpacking plant workers, and also health, life, and safety inspectors, and government officials.
IDPH received Phase 1-B distribution recommendations from the Iowa Disease Advisory Council. More details will be released soon on where Phase 1-B populations will receive vaccines. It's expected to take several weeks to complete Phase 1-B
