We know that you are anxious to get your vaccine but remember we have over 4200 persons aged 65 years and older. This is a slow process and can not occur in one week. This is going to be months to get it all accomplished.
Vaccine being received into the county does not cover all the numbers of persons needing the vaccine.
We need to offer some clarification to our press release from Wednesday. Our partners are asking for your help as well.
• At this time, Thrifty White pharmacy website is NOT accepting appointments as they currently do not have vaccine. When they have vaccine, then the site will allow you to schedule. Do NOT call them as there is no waiting list there. This will likely be in March.
• Our list is for those persons who do NOT have any local doctor or pharmacy in Winneshiek County.
• They should not be calling their doctor’s offices as they will be calling their patients from the priority list developed by each clinic.
We ask that you continue to practice good handwashing, social distancing and wearing masks and be patient.
We do appreciate your support and help in this matter.
