Vaccination Reservation Phone Lines will Reopen

Myrtue Medical Center’s vaccination reservation lines will reopen on Monday, February 22, at 8:00 AM for people 65 and older and employers of essential workers who meet the Phase 1B priority group (see Iowa Department of Public Health Vaccine Distribution to Priority Populations).

Community members or employers can call 712.755.4406 and reserve your spot. Another option to reserve your vaccine is to email Public Health at Please include your name, date of birth, address, phone number and essential worker designation in the email.

The phone lines will be available Monday-Friday (Feb 22nd-Feb 26th) from 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM.

Even though you may reserve your spot, vaccination will not be scheduled until vaccine supply has been allocated to Shelby County. When enough vaccine is received from Iowa Department of Public Health and/or the federal program, Myrtue’s Public Health will coordinate with local pharmacies and provide names from its COVID-19 reservation vaccination list. Myrtue’s Public Health and/or our pharmacy partners will call you to schedule your appointment. Our pharmacy partners which include: Paxton Pharmacy, Hy-Vee Pharmacy, Harlan Pharmacy, and Kwik RX Pharmacy. All pharmacy partners are using the same reservation vaccination list. They are not taking new reservations.

Vaccine supply is currently limited. The goal is for everyone in Shelby County to be able to easily get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as large quantities are available. The Public Health Department will communicate updates through Myrtue Medical Center’s COVID-19/Vaccination web page and through additional media releases and communications to the community. This is a fluid situation and the distributions may vary. Continue to like and follow Myrtue Medical Center’s Facebook page for updates.

Until vaccine is widely available, it is critical that Iowans continue to practice the mitigation measures that can slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
