Vaccination - Phase 1B Update

On January 21st, we received notice from Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) that 65 year-old people will be eligible for Phase 1B vaccine. Myrtue’s Public Health currently has 524 reservations for the 75 and older population and we will honor their reservations first. Anyone over 65 years of age and older that calls on or after 1.21.2021 to reserve a vaccine, will be added to the list based on when the request was received. Please keep in mind that the vaccine supply remains very limited and it will take some time to get everyone in Phase 1B vaccinated at current vaccine allocation rates.

Please call 712.755.4406 to reserve your slot if you are 65 and older or are an essential frontline worker as identified in the Phase 1B infographic. You may also email us at and provide your name, phone number, date of birth, your address, and your eligibility criteria. We will continue to take reservations through 1.29.2021. The phone lines will be covered from 8 am to 4 pm.

We are subject to Iowa Department of Public Health changes and vaccine allocations and are adjusting accordingly. Unfortunately, the supply did not increase with the expansion of the Phase 1B population. We ask for your patience as we work through this extensive Phase 1B population—both by age and frontline essential workers.
