COVID-19 Vaccine

VACCINES ARE AVAILABLE to all Iowans 12+. COVID-19 vaccine supply has increased significantly. Individuals 12 years of age and older wanting to receive a COVID-19 vaccine should now schedule an appointment for vaccine. Many vaccine providers are also accepting walk-ins.

Those age 12-17 can receive only the Pfizer vaccine. Iowans age 18 and older can have the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
