The Iowa Department of Public Health has allocated Scott County an extra 1,170 doses of Pfizer vaccine for administration to the Phase 1B 65+ priority population.

A one-day vaccination clinic is scheduled for Wednesday at Scott County’s vaccination clinic site at the former Sears department store, NorthPark Mall, 320 W Kimberly Road, Davenport, a news release says. Registration will be available at 10 a.m. Monday at http://immunize.scottcountyiowa.gov

The second dose of the vaccine will be given three weeks afterward to the seniors vaccinated during this clinic.

The one-time vaccination opportunity is in addition to vaccination appointments being scheduled through Scott County’s three major health systems – Genesis, UnityPoint Health – Trinity, and Community Health Care, Inc. – the process established through CASI, and through federal/state vaccine being administered through a limited number of local pharmacies.
