ADEL, Iowa — COVID-19 vaccines are now widely available in Dallas County through both state and federal supplies. Individuals may also be able to receive their vaccine through their primary healthcare provider.

Dallas County Health Department encourages residents to receive the first vaccine available to them. There are no residency restrictions. Dallas County residents may receive their vaccine in other counties.

COVID-19 vaccines are provided at no cost to the recipient. A vaccine provider may request health insurance information to cover the administration fee, but there will never be a charge directly to the vaccine recipient.

Current eligibility includes all persons 16 years of age and older. The Pfizer BioNTech vaccine is authorized for those 16 and older; the Moderna and Janssen (J&J) are authorized for those 18 and older.

The CDC and FDA have recommended that use of the Janssen (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine may resume after a temporary pause. More information is available at the CDC website

Homebound Dallas County residents wishing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine may call the Dallas County Health Department to be added to the waitlist. When a nurse is available, homebound residents may receive their vaccine in their home.

Due to increased supply and lessening demand, the Dallas County Health Department clinic schedule will remain open until 24 hours before a scheduled clinic. Individuals will no longer need to wait until Friday at 12 p.m. to schedule an appointment. Appointments at the DCHD COVID-19 Vaccine clinic can be made online or over the phone.

As vaccine is now widely available, this will be the last Monday Vaccine Availability Update. Any additional information will be shared in a timely manner on the Dallas County Health Department website, the Dallas County Health Department Facebook page and with local media partners.

Dallas County residents are encouraged to remain patient as more vaccine arrives in the weeks and months ahead. It is also critical to continue practicing mitigation measures that can slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

  • Wear a mask or facial covering.
  • Practice distancing 6 feet from those outside your household.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
  • Stay home if you feel sick.
  • Get tested if you are exposed to or have symptoms of COVID-19.
