  • Federally Qualified Health Center
  • Infectious disease
  • COVID-19 vaccinators of essential populations
  • Hospitalists
  • Staff/physicians of urgent care centers
  • Primary Care

Every hospital and skilled nursing/assisted living facility will receive vaccine for their staff and residents. If you are employed by one of those facilities, check with your employer to schedule your vaccination. If you fall within any of the health care personnel descriptions listed above and are not employed by one of the facilities, please contact our office (641-464-0691) to set up an appointment.

When we receive vaccine that is available to other populations as defined by IDAC, the public will be notified and urged to make appointments at that time.
