A limited amount of COVID-19 vaccine is available at Walgreens and CVS.
The Iowa Department of Public Health announced Wednesday that there is enough vaccine for about 32-thousand Iowans age 65 and older.
They are unused vaccines, which were originally allocated to the Long-Term Care Pharmacy Partnership Program and have now been redistributed to a limited number of Walgreens and CVS stores in select Iowa counties.
Iowans age 65 and older can register online for a vaccine appointment at a participating Walgreens or CVS location near them. There are Walgreens locations nearby in Dubuque, Linn and Black Hawk counties – appointments can now be made at those locations while supplies last. There are CVS locations nearby in Linn and Black Hawk counties – appointments can be made at those locations beginning at 8 am Thursday.
If you are not able to secure one of these vaccine appointments, be assured that more vaccines are coming to the state on a weekly basis.
