As Polk County’s vaccine supply that is allocated by the state remains limited, Polk County will not be opening up additional eligibility until substantial progress is made on the current groups. If the supply of vaccine from the state increases, we will open to additional groups faster.
Recently, we asked PCHD staff why they decided to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Why did YOU get vaccinated?
Starting, Monday, March 15, 2021, The Polk County Health Department, Polk County hospitals and clinics and select Medicap pharmacies will open COVID-19 vaccine appointments to 64 years and under with underlying health conditions pending vaccine allocation.
First dose appointments will be opened today at noon. All individuals (16 years and up) are eligible. Visit https://t.co/xf0MkTuHXs
The Polk County Health Department is delighted to share an expansion of its partnership with Hy-Vee. Hy-Vee is helping the Polk County Health Department COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic by vaccinating individuals who need their second dose of Moderna.
IMPORTANT: First dose appointment updates. These appointments open today at noon and will take place next week (April 12-16). These appointments are open to all individuals (16 and up).
The Polk County Health Department and the Polk County Sherriff’s Office have been alerted to several COVID-19 vaccine scams in our community.
RT @ridedart: Happy National Public Health Week, @polkcohealth! Thank you for all that you do for our community. #NPHW https://t.co/RsUe2SO…
In January, we saw larger allocations of Moderna than Pfizer. The Polk County Health Department made a planning assumption that the supply of both brands would continue to increase and in an effort to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible.
Rain or shine, our PCHD staff and @DesMoinesUniv students continue to vaccinate our community one shot at a time! 💉😷
On behalf of Polk County hospitals, clinics and pharmacies, we want to thank our community for their patience and understanding as we continue vaccinating individuals eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine as efficiently as possible. Collectively, we are committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy.
