MUSCATINE, Iowa-In response to the Iowa Department of Public Health announcing that counties may move to people with certain underlying health conditions previously included in Phase 1C of COVID-19 vaccination if they have finished or nearly finished Phase 1B, Trinity Muscatine Public Health provided an update about their current vaccination progress. Their announcement follows below verbatim.

How is the vaccine being distributed right now in Muscatine County through Public Health?

  • Phase 1B 1st and 2nd dose clinics
  • The state of Iowa announced in the afternoon of March 4th that pharmacies, Dr. offices, and local public health departments, that are ready, can begin vaccinating Persons 64 years and younger with high risk medical conditions (previously in Phase 1C). The state amended their order to include this population into Phase 1B.
    • The Public Health Department for Muscatine County will not be moving on until we can ensure persons 65 years and older are vaccinated.

If I am 65 or older, how can I get my COVID-19 Vaccine?

If I am in the approved 1B workforce, how can I get my COVID-19 Vaccine?

  • Public Health is setting up vaccination clinics with the approved workforce. You will be contacted by your employer when the vaccine is available.
  • There are 5 tiers to the workforce that we must vaccinate in order from 1 to 5. We are done with Tier 1 and moving onto Tier 2 workforce as of 3/5/21
    • Tier 1 = First Responders, School Staff, Early Childhood Educators and Childcare Providers
