Winneshiek County Public Health: PLEASE do not call us about COVID-19 vaccines

Posted: Mon, Dec 14, 2020 3:43 PM

The Winneshiek County Public Health Department and other area health care providers are getting swamped with phone calls from members of the public who want to be put on a waiting list to receive the coronavirus vaccine.  However, there is no such list.

The statement released late Monday afternoon said: "Winneshiek County Public Health and our health care partners are asking the community for your patience. There are NO lists available to get on at our office or any of the medical clinics for the Covid-19 vaccine.

Winneshiek County Public Health and other providers are tasked with following a prioritization schedule from the CDC and IDPH whichcurrently only includes very front-line healthcare workers.  The vaccine will be distributed according to the schedule that is given to us.

When it is time for others in the community to be vaccinated, notification will occur via various media outlets including local radio, newspaper, Facebook and other news outlets.

Again, there are NO lists available to get on at Winneshiek County Public Health or at any of the medical clinics for the COVID-19 vaccine.
