County moves to Monday, Friday vaccine availability schedule


ADEL, Iowa — The Dallas County Public Health Department announced Tuesday a change in its schedule for announcing vaccine availability.

The new vaccine availability update schedule will take effect the week of Feb. 8, reflecting schedule changes at the state level, the department said in a statement. The schedule will be as follows:

Mondays at 12 p.m. (noon). The Dallas County Health Department will release a Vaccine Availability Update for the county on its website, including information on where vaccine was allocated throughout the county for the following week and how to schedule. People seeking vaccination should be aware that allocations do not mean that vaccine is immediately available but only that those doses will be sent to those locations within the following week.

Fridays at 12 p.m. (noon). The schedule will open for appointments at the public health department’s clinic. The Friday schedule does not include the pharmacies partnering with the county. Appointments can be scheduled online or by phone. The appointments will be for first doses only. Second dose appointments at the Dallas County Public Health Department will be scheduled when you receive your first dose.

Appointments for the health department’s vaccination clinic for the week of Feb. 8-12 will open at 12 p.m. (noon) Friday, Feb. 5. The appointments will be limited and are expected to fill quickly. If you are unable to schedule this week, additional appointments at the health department’s vaccination clinic will become available each Friday moving forward.

In order to accommodate people without internet capacity, appointments can be scheduled online as well as by phone. Those making appointments via phone will be prompted to leave a name and phone number. Staff will return calls in the order they were received in order to schedule an appointment. Multiple phone calls are not necessary. Appointments are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

The Dallas County Health Department is located at 25747 N Ave., #C, Adel, IA 50003.
