All Iowans 16 and older now eligible for COVID-19 vaccine

(FOX47) — As of Monday, all Iowans aged 16 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

This comes almost a week since Minnesota expanded vaccine eligibility as well.

This does not mean Iowa residents will be able to get an appointment immediately. When discussing the change last week, Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) acknowledged there will be a surge in people making appointments.

The state is expecting an increase in supply from the federal government this week.

According to the latest data from the state, nearly 663,000 Iowans have now completed the vaccine series. More than 1.58 million doses have been administered to Iowa residents.

A breakdown of the number Iowans who have completed the vaccine series by county in the Fox 47 viewing area is below. The following data has also been provided by the state.

  • Cerro Gordo: 10,595
  • Floyd: 3,310
  • Hancock: 2,180
  • Howard: 1,702
  • Mitchell: 2,016
  • Winnebago: 1,945
  • Worth: 1,421
  • Winneshiek: 3,815
