Iowa’s one-year COVID anniversary comes with positive news

The one-year anniversary of the first cases of Covid being reported in the state was this past Monday and Governor Kim Reynolds says Iowa is about to hit another, more positive milestone.

It’s projected the one-millionth Iowan will be vaccinated against the virus sometime in the next few days.

The governor said 13 percent of Iowans are now fully vaccinated. Getting scheduled for an appointment is still a challenge, however.

Iowans 65 and older can now call 211 to talk with a “vaccine navigator” to get scheduled for a shot.
