What phase are we in?
Who gets vaccine and when?
Right now there is a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine. More shipments of vaccine are expected in the following weeks and months, making vaccine available to anyone who wants it. Until then, experts are making recommendations on who should get these first few shipments of vaccine:
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with input from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), has recommended the first shipments of vaccine for residents and staff of long-term care facilities and healthcare providers who work at hospitals.
- Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), with input from the Infectious Disease Advisory Council (IDAC), will provide more recommendations for who should get vaccine next. This guidance is to help reduce health inequities from geography, poverty and other social determinants.
- LCPH will follow all state and federal recommendations for COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
