THE SIOUXLAND COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER WILL BE INVITED TO JOIN THE HEALTH CENTER COVID-19 VACCINE PROGRAM OVER THE NEXT SIX WEEKS.

THE HEALTH RESOURCES AND SERVICES ADMINISTRATION (HRSA) AND THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION LAUNCHED THE PROGRAM TO DIRECTLY ALLOCATE COVID-19 VACCINES TO HRSA-SUPPORTED HEALTH CENTERS.

IT’S TO ENSURE THAT UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES AND THOSE DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY COVID-19 ARE EQUITABLY VACCINATED.

THE INVITATION WAS EXTENDED AFTER CONGRESSMAN RANDY FEENSTRA AND MEMBERS OF THE IOWA HOUSE DELEGATION SENT A LETTER TO THE H-R-S-A AND THE CDC, URGING THEM TO PRIORITIZE IOWA’S FEDERALLY QUALIFIED HEALTH CENTERS IN THE NEXT ROUND OF THEIR PROGRAM.

FEENSTRA RECENTLY TOURED SIOUXLAND COMMUNITY HEALTH.
