"We don’t know if we will receive more of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, so our advice is to sign up for whatever vaccine is available to you," said Lynzie Nilles, director of Kossuth County Public Health at Kossuth Regional Health Center. "We don't want people to postpone receiving their vaccine because they want to wait for the single dose variety, especially if those doses are limited and the Moderna vaccine is plentiful."

Individuals age 18 and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals who are homebound and unable to attend a vaccine clinic may call 515-295-4450 and press 1 to talk with public health staff to determine if they meet the criteria to receive the vaccine in their home.
