Update from Allamakee County Public Health on COVID-19 vaccine

Allamakee County Public Health would like to acknowledge that there is a lot of information and uncertainty regarding COVID-19 vaccine availability. We have received numerous phone calls with questions concerning who is eligible to receive this vaccination and when.

Our office is preparing to receive and administer the vaccine, but we are asking for the public’s patience throughout this process. We are aware that the demand significantly outweighs the supply we will initially be provided with. We are required to follow a vaccine prioritization schedule set by the CDC and IDPH that currently includes frontline healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities.

Note there are no waiting lists available to get on at our facility or other medical clinics in our area. When it is time for others in the community to be vaccinated, we will notify the public. Continue to monitor our website, social media pages, local radio and newspaper for updates.
