COVID-19 vaccine clinic set for Thursday

The Webster County Health Department will offer a COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Thursday for Webster County residents age 65 and older who are not actively sick or in public health isolation.

The clinic will begin at 1:30 p.m. at Crossroads Mall.

All vaccinations will be by appointment only.

The Health Department reported that 300 appointment slots will open at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Appointments can only be made by telephone. Call (515) 227-7104 beginning at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Only two appointments can be made per phone call. Callers will be asked to provide their name, address, date of birth, and phone number. Insurance information will be collected at the clinic.

The phone line will be shut down after all appointment slots are filled.

Only those with appointments will be allowed into the clinic.

Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your scheduled time.

There will be a 15-minute wait after the vaccine is administered.

Dress in layers so one arm is accessible.

Park in the lot in front of the mall’s west entrance.

Masks are required.

Those without insurance will not be turned away.

If you have already made an appointment with a local pharmacy that is also providing vaccine, do not make a duplicate appointment with the Health Department.

This week, the Health Department received an allotment of 600 vaccines, and 300 of them will be used to vaccinate the homebound as well as to complete vaccinations at schools.
