COVID-19 vaccine appointments are available in Dallas County for health care workers

Submitted by Dallas County Health Department
Hy-Vee partnered with the Dallas County Health Department to administer its first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to frontline health care workers in Iowa on Dec. 30 at the Waukee Hy-Vee.

The Dallas County Health Department will continue offering COVID-19 vaccinations to health care workers eligible for vaccination in Phase 1-A. Appointments will be available at the Dallas County Health Department, as well as at several local pharmacies. These appointments will be limited, based on vaccine supply, and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Appointment slots are expected to fill quickly, so if you are unable to schedule at this time we advise you check back at a later date. We will be scheduling more clinics as vaccine supply increases so that anyone wanting a vaccine will be able to receive it.

Phase 1-A includes paid or unpaid persons serving in health care settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials. This includes health care personnel with direct patient contact, those who work in inpatient, outpatient, or community settings, who provide services to patients or patient’s family members, or who handle infectious materials. The full phase 1-A guidance from the Iowa Infectious Disease Advisory Committee can be found online. 

COVID-19 vaccination appointments may be scheduled for phase 1-A providers at the following locations while supplies last:
