Iowa launches COVID-19 vaccination hotline
(WOWT) - The Iowa Department of Public Health has set up a hotline to help older residents find out more information on getting their COVID-19 vaccine.
“Iowans ages 65 and older are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Supplies are still limited, but vaccine providers throughout Iowa are scheduling appointments,” according to a poster IDPH has been circulating on social media.
Older or home-bound Iowans looking for help scheduling a COVID-19 vaccination appointment can call 1-866-468-7887 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Residents have been asked to use the map on Iowa’s coronavirus website to navigate to information about the provider in their area, which meant calling through a list of local pharmacies who may be able to schedule a vaccination; but now, Iowans can also call the toll-free number.
The flyer also suggests visiting IowaAging.gov, or a local agency on aging.
