COVID-19 VACCINE PRESS RELEASE

COVID-19 Moderna Vaccine for Cedar County (Phase 1B)

 

The Infectious Disease Advisory Council for Iowa and the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) have made their final recommendations for populations associated with phase 1b to include people ages ≥75 and essential workforce. The final detailed recommendations can be found here https://idph.iowa.gov/Emerging-Health-Issues/Novel-Coronavirus/IDAC. Phase 1b is expected to begin no later than February 1, 2021 across the state. Every county in Iowa will have varying timelines based upon their resources. Vaccine allocations to each county will be determined by IDPH and will be delivered over a period of several weeks. Cedar County Public Health (CCPH) has clinics scheduled through the month of January to complete initial doses and begin second doses for phase 1a which will continue into February.

 

“We are happy to hear so many of our Cedar County residents are interested in receiving the vaccine, but it is important to realize this is going to be a lengthy process.” Jamie Walker, Director for CCPH said. “Mass vaccination requires strategic planning to serve the target populations. We ask for your patience as we continue to work through completion of phase 1a while planning for 1b.”

 

Following the completion of phase 1b planning CCPH will communicate to the public on the process for scheduling. Cedar County updates for phase 1b will be shared via local newspapers, CCPH Facebook page and the county website at https://cedarcounty.iowa.gov/.

 

Everyone (including those who are vaccinated) should continue taking protective measures to limit the spread of COVID-19:

·         Stay home if you are sick

·         Wash your hands often

·         Social distance 6 feet from others

·         Wear a mask correctly over both your nose and mouth

COVID-19 Moderna Vaccine for Cedar County (Phase 1A)

 

Cedar County Public Health received their first allotment of the Moderna, COVID-19 vaccine on 12/22/20. The department has been providing vaccines to the priority populations in Phase 1A which includes healthcare personnel and residents of long-term care and assisted living facilities. Jamie Walker, Cedar County Public Health Director says, “If you are a healthcare worker and have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials, please contact the Cedar County Public Health Department at 563-886-2226 to schedule your appointment.”

 

At this time, it is unknown when local public health departments will be authorized by the Iowa Department of Public Health to open distribution of the vaccine to phase 1B. In addition, we do not have the final recommendations on who qualifies for phase 1B from the Iowa Infectious Disease Advisory Council (IDAC).

 

As more information and vaccine becomes available, Cedar County Public Health will advise the community via local newspapers, social media and the county website at https://cedarcounty.iowa.gov/. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
