    MUSCATINE, Iowa – The Muscatine County Public Health Department (MCPH) is working with local doctor offices and local pharmacies to distribute the vaccine to the county for target populations aged 65 and older. There have been very limited doses sent at this time.

     

    These doctor offices and pharmacies will announce and advertise once they have the vaccine and it is open to their patients and targeted populations.

     

    Please note that Hy-Vee in Muscatine is now receiving direct doses of vaccine from our state.  They anticipate receiving 200 per week and will announce this on their Facebook page and website how individuals can access these appointments. Please share this with your respective communities.
