COVID-19 vaccine will soon be arriving in Iowa

The COVID-19 vaccine will soon be arriving in Iowa. Governor Kim Reynolds said during her COVID update that pending FDA approval, Iowa will get its first shipment of 26-thousand doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine during the week of December 13th. That’ll be the first of multiple shipments this month, which should total 172,000 doses, Reynolds said. She also urged everyone to continue with COVID safety measures to help prevent community spread of the deadly disease. The vaccine won’t be available to the general public until next year and these first batches are being prioitized for front line workers and the states most vulnerable.
