New Iowa COVID-19 Vaccination Dashboard Features Where to Get One
Even though doses of COVID-19 vaccine are scarce right now, the Iowa Department of Public Health has created a new vaccination dashboard. And it features a list of places to register to get immunized as more doses become available.
Click on "Vaccination Provider Information" and select a county on the map. The list of providers features vaccine sites, addresses, phone numbers, and websites.
Currently, there are 29 sites listed for Scott County including hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies. The list includes the Scott County Health Department which has already filled its appointments for a vaccination clinic on Monday, Feb. 1st at the former Sears at North Park Mall.
The new dashboard page also features county-level statistics about the number of vaccination series initiated and completed. So far, about 9,200 Scott County residents have had one dose and more than 2,000 have received two doses. In Rock Island County, around 7,500 residents have been vaccinated once and 1,100 have completed the two-dose series. That's according to the vaccination page on the Illinois Department of Public Health COVID-19 website.
In addition, the Scott County Health Department has enlisted an agency to assist seniors who don't have access to the internet. CASI, the Center for Active Seniors in Davenport, is now helping people 65 and older with online vaccine registration. The number to call is 563.386.7477.
And on Monday, Feb. 1st, free COVID-19 testing will be available at the TaxSlayer Center parking lot in Moline from 8 am until 4 pm.
