GOVERNOR KIM REYNOLDS SAYS IT’S PROJECTED THE ONE-MILLIONTH IOWAN WILL BE VACCINATED AGAINST COVID-19 IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

MIL1 OC……..”THE COUNTRY” :17

REYNOLDS SAYS ALMOST 94-PERCENT OF IOWANS WHO ARE 65 AND OLDER HAVE GOTTEN AT LEAST THEIR FIRST DOSE OF A VACCINE.

NEXT WEEK IOWA COULD GET FOUR-THOUSAND DOSES OF THE JOHNSON AND JOHNSON VACCINE.

MORE THAN 18-THOUSAND IOWANS HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED THE NEW, SINGLE DOSE VACCINE.

REYNOLDS SAYS THEY ARE AMONG THE 160-THOUSAND IOWANS WHO WORK IN FOOD PROCESSING, AG PRODUCTION AND MANUFACTURING COMPANIES OR WHO LIVE IN COMMUNAL SETTINGS THAT ARE ON THE STATE’S INITIAL LIST FOR THE JOHNSON AND JOHNSON SHOTS.

MIL2 OC………STABILIZE.” :16

REYNOLDS SAYS A LARGE SEGMENT OF THE STATE’S POPULATION IS NOW ELIGIBLE FOR A VACCINATION IN MANY COUNTIES BECAUSE STATE OFFICIALS ANNOUNCED THAT SMOKERS AND IOWANS WITH MEDICAL CONDITIONS LIKE ASTHMA AND DIABETES CAN SIGN UP TO GET A SHOT.

THE GOVERNOR SAYS IT’S FINE FOR ELIGIBLE IOWANS TO GO OUTSIDE OF THEIR HOME COUNTY TO GET A SHOT IF THEY’RE UNABLE TO SCHEDULE ONE CLOSE TO WHERE THEY LIVE.
