The Iowa Department of Public Health is proposing a vaccination strategy for coronavirus. The vaccination would be given to the most vulnerable Iowans first because the state expects there may be a limited supply of the vaccine early on. The state expects the vaccine will require multiple doses, and providers will need to send reminders when patients are due. The documents were submitted to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention for review and approval. There is not a coronavirus vaccine available yet.
