“We are working to bring a more robust and dynamic dashboard of our vaccine progress online in the coming weeks. Iowans can expect to see additional data points that will clearly illustrate the progress we are making in vaccinating Iowans,” says Kelly Garcia, IDPH interim director.
Coronavirus shots are currently being administered to populations in the Phase 1A category; health care personnel and residents and staff in long-term care facilities. IDPH says that will expand in the coming weeks to further reach Iowans in the next priority groups.
“We know Iowans are eager to learn of the progress we are making in the vaccine effort, and we are committed to sharing information as we work through the stage of vaccinating this initial priority population. Stabilizing our health care system is paramount in our fight against COVID-19,” says Garcia.
