Northwestern and Dordt Among First IA Colleges To Get Vaccines
March 31, 2021 3:48pm
Iowa's still on track to start ramping up COVID-19 vaccines on Monday for anyone who wants them, as Governor Kim Reynolds says the state will be seeing a "significant increase" in federal allocations of the vaccine in the coming days. The Governor states that for Iowa, it's the largest allocation to date - nearly 120,000 doses for the state and another 41,000 for Iowa's retail pharmacy partners, which will total nearly 161,000 doses of vaccine. Reynolds says College students and staff at select Iowa campuses will be getting the shot as early as next week as a small allocation will be provided to Dordt University, Northwestern College, the University of Iowa, and DMACC to begin student vaccinations. Larger amounts of the J&J vaccine will be allocated in the following weeks for the same purpose.
Governor Reynolds says 1.52-million doses have been administered to Iowans so far and at least 40-percent of Iowans 18-and-older have gotten at least one dose, which she says ranks Iowa 17th in the U-S.
