Reynolds Says All Iowan’s Could Be Eligible For Vaccine Beginning April 5th

Governor Kim Reynolds said on Wednesday that as soon as April 5th, all Iowa residents could be eligible to receive a Covid Vaccine, this is contingent upon federal supplies increasing as projected. The State is expected to be allocated somewhere between 200k-290k doses, including some of the Johnson and Johnson single dose.

If projections are correct, this would cover around 10-15% of Iowa’s adult population. Federal officials have approved doses for those 16 or over, with Younger children possibly eligible as soon as the Fall.

As of now Jefferson County Public Health remains at 300 doses per week of the Moderna vaccine, with Local pharmacies taking part in the federal/state program varying weekly.
