On Thursday, March 4th, 2021, the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) announced that individuals with specific medical conditions placing them at increased risk of severe illness if infected with COVID-19 would be eligible for vaccination in Iowa beginning March 8th, 2021.

The allotment of vaccines from the State to Carroll County has not yet increased. The supply of vaccines for the week of March 8-14, 2021 have been accounted for prior to the announcement that individuals with underlying conditions would become eligible. Carroll County Public Health, working in cooperation with St. Anthony Clinic, McFarland Clinic, and Manning Regional Healthcare Center, will begin the process of including vaccine eligible individuals with underlying conditions the week of March 15th.
Please share this information with family and friends who may not have internet access. Regardless of location, if you have the opportunity to get the vaccine, don’t pass it by. It is also very important to communicate with sites if you end up getting a vaccine in another location so that your dose can be released to someone else.
