Feb. 4 COVID-19 Update

IDPH Planning for COVID-19 Vaccine Response Support

Governor Reynolds announced today the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) is seeking proposals from vendors to assist with the completion of one or more of the following statewide projects:

Create or leverage an existing centralized vaccine call center to provide information about COVID-19 vaccine availability, screen callers for prioritization eligibility and provide contact information for vaccine providers in the caller’s community.

Create or leverage an existing centralized vaccine call center to provide information about COVID-19 vaccine availability, screen callers for prioritization eligibility and assist with a warm hand off to a vaccine provider in the caller’s community so the caller can receive more information about vaccine availability and appointment scheduling.

Create or leverage an existing centralized vaccine call center to provide information about COVID-19 vaccine availability, screen callers for prioritization eligibility, provide contact information for vaccine providers in the caller’s community as requested and assist callers with vaccine registration and appointment scheduling.

Develop and deploy an online vaccine registration system that will allow IDPH to collect information from Iowans wanting to register for a vaccination appointment and allow registered Iowans to schedule vaccination appointments with Iowa’s enrolled vaccine providers upon notification of eligibility to schedule a vaccination appointment.

Additional information will be shared on this initiative when it is available.


Phase 1b: Balancing Vaccine Priorities

Vaccinations are underway in Dubuque County for residents eligible in Phase 1b Tier 1 but vaccine allocations to the state and county are limited. As supplies are limited, vaccination appointments will also be limited. As the table below indicates, it is estimated that nearly 21,000 county residents are eligible for vaccination in this phase. Residents age 65 and over are being contacted by their healthcare providers as supplies allow. Tier 1 subgroups should receive information from their employer as supplies allow.
