Monday Morning Release from Jefferson County Public Health Administrator Chris Estle:
Jefferson County Public Health is currently making appointments for individuals 65 years of age and older. Per IDPH, we are allowed to begin vaccinations with this population prior to Phase 1B. This will begin at the end of this week. Phase 1B Tier 1 will begin February first, we will follow the Tier 1-5 guidance.
Please know that the state of Iowa does NOT have enough vaccine to meet the demand at this time. Vaccine allocations come from the federal level to the state level and then to the local level.
We are answering 3 phone lines and making appointments and administering booster doses to the Phase 1A population.
Please be patient and understanding as we continue to work diligently on this priority-phased vaccine roll out.
