Our vaccine clinics have been going very well. Individuals who received the Moderna vaccine on New Year’s Day will receive their second dose on January 28th. We have two more Pfizer clinics scheduled for January 30th and February 20th. As you may already know, the vaccine distribution is quite the undertaking on a nationwide level. To date, 96,686 vaccines have been administered in Iowa. Our state is currently performing amongst the highest in the nation for vaccine administration, when comparing the number of vaccines allocated to vaccines administered. The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) shared new guidelines for COVID-19 vaccine priority populations for Phase 1B. With short term projections, the focus will be individuals 75 and over, as well as other high risk populations. They are expecting this to roll out February 1st. Please continue to practice precautions as you go about your day. The county positivity rate still is high and it does affect and even restrict what we are able to do in operations on our campus.
