Henry County is preparing to accommodate the newest eligible groups to receive the COVID-19 vaccine with walk-in clinics.
The Iowa Department of Public Health announced this week that Phase 1B of COVID-19 vaccine distribution is set to begin in early February, allowing people aged 75 and older and other groups to receive the vaccine. The county has scheduled two clinics to vaccinate these groups, according to Henry County Public Health.
The first clinic, which will be held Feb. 2, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., will only be available for 75-year-olds and older. The second clinic is open for all groups under Phase 1B and will be Feb. 4 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
Both clinics will be at the First Presbyterian Church, 902 S Walnut St. in Mt. Pleasant. Participants should use the southeast entrance.
Depending on vaccine availability, these times could change. More clinics will be scheduled throughout February as the county learns more about vaccine delivery.
The clinics are walk-in, and an appointment isn’t required. Participants can print and fill out a consent form before attending the clinic at HealthyHenryCounty.org/covid.
