Phase 1B Vaccinations Continue
Vaccination of Dubuque County residents eligible in Phase 1B continue as the county was allocated 2,340 doses this week. In addition to the ongoing vaccinations of residents age 65 and older, the first round vaccinations of residents eligible in Tier 1 of this phase (first responders, PK-12 staff, early childhood education, childcare workers) will conclude this week. Next week, vaccinations will focus on residents age 65 and older as preparations continue to vaccinate residents eligible in Tier 2 (frontline essential workers in food, agriculture, and manufacturing sectors who live or work in non-social distanced settings and individuals with disabilities living in home settings and their direct care staff).
Healthcare providers continue to contact their primary care patients age 65 and older by
phone, text, and email to offer vaccination appointments as vaccine supplies allow.
If you have not yet been contacted by your primary care provider, they will contact you
as supplies increase. Please do not call clinics requesting the vaccine at this time because a high volume of calls makes it more difficult to assist patients with immediate needs.
If you are a Dubuque County resident 65 years and older and do not have a primary
care provider, call the Dubuque County Sleeves Up phone number at 563-587-4950
for assistance on how to receive a vaccine.
Some Dubuque County pharmacies are receiving vaccines and are expected to receive
more over time. Most of these appointments are scheduled through websites/online
systems so ask family, friends, or neighbors if you need assistance with online registration
processes. Please note appointment availability is based on the vaccine supply for
the week. Dubuque County pharmacies offering or expected to offer vaccines include:
Additional pharmacies may be added to this program later. Vaccine appointments must be
scheduled in advance.
