According to the Iowa Department of Public Health, as of Friday, March 26, Ringgold County residents have received 2,670 total doses and 1,090 residents (22 percent) have completed the series of two shots.
Ringold County Public Health Director Becky Fletchall estimated the county should be up to nearly 25 percent by the end of this week.
This data includes all sources of receipt of vaccine (whether they received at the pharmacy, public health, the federal pharmaceutical program for nursing home residents/staff, or even out of county).
The data continues to evolve.
“We continue to administer vaccines throughout the week, both initial and booster doses,” said Fletchall. “Anyone who has not received vaccine can call to get their name on the list at public health: 641-464-0691. We will reach the end of our current waiting list this week.”
In addition, Hy-Vee pharmacy in Mount Ayr is also an option to receive vaccine. They request online sign-up at https://www.hy-vee.com/my-pharmacy/covid-vaccine or call 641-464-3300.
Beginning April 5, all Iowans who are interested in receiving a vaccine will qualify. Locally, Moderna vaccine is available at both locations. It is currently licensed for individuals age 18 and over.
The state website continues to track total doses administered here: https://coronavirus.iowa.gov/pages/vaccineinformation#VaccineInformation.
