Dallas County News
People get the COVID-19 vaccine shot during a Story County COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at Gates Memorial Hall in Nevada, Iowa.

COVID-19 vaccines are now widely available in Dallas County through both state and federal supplies.

Individuals may be able to receive their vaccine through their primary healthcare provider. Dallas County Health Department encourages residents to receive the first vaccine available to them. There are no residency restrictions; Dallas County residents may receive their vaccine in other counties. 

COVID-19 vaccines are provided at no cost to the recipient. A vaccine provider may request health insurance information to cover the administration fee, but there will never be a charge directly to the vaccine recipient. 

Current eligibility includes all persons 16 years of age and older. The Pfizer BioNTech vaccine is authorized for those 16 and older; the Moderna and Janssen are authorized for those 18 and older.

Homebound Dallas County residents who want to receive the COVID-19 vaccine may call the Dallas County Health Department to be added to the waitlist. When a nurse is available, homebound residents may receive their vaccine in their home.

Due to increased supply and lessening demand, the Dallas County Health Department clinic schedule will remain open until 24 hours before a scheduled clinic. Individuals will no longer need to wait until noon Friday to schedule an appointment. Appointments at the DCHD COVID-19 Vaccine clinic can be made online or over the phone.

This will be the last Monday Vaccine Availability Update as the vaccine is now widely available. Any additional information will be shared in a timely manner on the Dallas County website, the Dallas County Health Department’s Facebook page and with local media partners.

We encourage Dallas County residents to continue practicing mitigation measures that can slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect those that are not yet able to receive the vaccine.

  • Wear a mask or facial covering
  • Practice distancing 6 feet from those outside your household
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water
  • Stay home if you feel sick
  • Get tested if you are exposed to, or have symptoms of COVID-19
