Covid Vaccination Updates – April 2021

On Friday the governor and IDPH added Tier 1C to the groups eligible to receive vaccines for Covid19.  Those aged 16-64 with pre-existing conditions are now eligible. Winneshiek County does not yet have enough vaccine supply for Tier 1C. However, the Federal Retail Pharmacy Vaccination Program is intended to provide additional vaccination opportunities to supplement what counties can do. If you are eligible to receive the vaccine, you can go to a pharmacy in another county to receive your vacciatination. There is a new vaccine spotter website that can assist you in this. Click here for the vaccine spotter. You can cross state lines for a shot as long as you are eligible in your state. MN has more vaccine appointments and Preston HyVee has a number of openings. If you qualify in IA, you can get a shot there.
If you are overwhelmed with all this information, Good Shepherd member Kris Peterson is glad to help people with this.   641-430-1077
