The Iowa Department of Public Health announced that it would be guaranteeing a stable supply of vaccine to each county for the remainder of the month of February. In Scott County, this will be 2,250 doses a week to be split among the 65+ age group and the Phase 1B tiers. Prior to this announcement, each county waited to hear weekly which vaccine they were receiving and how many doses would be received. Now that we know the type of vaccine and the amount of vaccine we will be receiving for the next several weeks, we can establish a process that will be consistent for our community.
Healthcare Providers to Vaccinate 65+ Group
Beginning this week, all vaccine for the 65+ priority group in Scott County will be provided to our three community-wide health systems: Genesis, UnityPoint Health – Trinity, and Community Health Care, Inc., for administration through their clinics.
This has many benefits:
**Healthcare providers are beginning to contact their patients to schedule vaccination appointments as they receive supply of vaccine each week. If you are a patient of one of these health systems, there is nothing you need to do at this time. You will be contacted.**
Seniors Without a Primary Provider or Primary Care Provider Not a Part of 3 Health Systems
Seniors who do not have a provider, or a provider who is not a member of the 3 health systems, can contact CASI at 563-386-7477 to help get connected to the new vaccination process. Seniors who have already called CASI for assistance do not need to call again. CASI will be in contact regarding next steps.
Vaccinations of Phase 1B Tier 1 Priority GroupsPeople 65+ will be immunized throughout Phase 1B. At the same time, immunizations will be conducted for priority groups in the Phase 1B Tiers. Our department will be directly contacting groups in the Tier designations. This schedule was set by the Iowa Department of Public Health, and we are required by law to comply. Many extremely difficult prioritization decisions have been made due to the limited amount of vaccine.
Other Opportunities for Vaccinations for 65+ Group
For most people in the 65+ priority group, vaccination will be through their healthcare provider. Others may wish to actively search for vaccine outside this process. A very limited supply of vaccine is slowly starting to be allocated to local pharmacies by the state and federal government. The pharmacies involved will be in charge of the registration and vaccine administration. We do not know how this process works and as a result are not able to answer questions about their systems. The supply in these pharmacies will be very small and we don’t expect large numbers of people to be vaccinated through these systems in the next few weeks.
We will continue to use this listserv to provide additional updates on vaccine supply and additional vaccination opportunities that become available. We continue to ask for your patience. It will still take a number of weeks until the supply is great enough to vaccinate a large number of individuals each week.
