Union County Public Health and Greater Regional Health have received information from Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) regarding number of doses being allocated to Union County Public Health for disbursement.
Continuing through the month of February, Union County Public Health will receive 200 doses each week. This allocation will allow Union County Public Health to set up COVID-19 clinics for Union County’s population of 65+ and continue to work through the tiers in Phase 1b as communicated by IDPH.
Union County Public Health and Greater Regional Health are excited about this positive news of working through the tiers and 65+ population with these consistent doses of vaccine allotment.
As a reminder, for the 65+ population if you would like to receive a vaccine, please sign up online at www.greaterregional.org or call the hotline on Tuesday and Thursdays from noon to 2pm at (641)745-0124. Once you have signed up for the waiting list, Union County Public Health will reach out to you to schedule an appointment.
Union County Public Health is dependent on the number of doses sent each week and will diligently work to get all vaccinated as quickly as the doses are made available. The demand for vaccine is far more than the doses made available at this time. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process. Union County Public Health and Greater Regional Health are committed to vaccinating all who want to have this vaccine, as quickly as possible.
To be transparent, Union County Public Health and Greater Regional Health will continue to communicate updates regarding doses and distribution. As of February 11th, Union County Public Health is still working through the first tier of Phase 1b, notification of moving to the next tier will be communicated.
