The Dallas County Health Department is partnering with Hy-Vee Inc. to administer the first doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to Dallas County front-line health care workers today at the Waukee Hy-Vee Pharmacy, Hy-Vee announced this morning. At this time, pharmacies are only able to vaccinate front-line health care workers due to the CDC’s allocation guidance. Dallas County front-line health care workers who would like to receive the COVID-19 vaccine can visit Hy-Vee’s website to schedule an appointment; proof of employment is required. Hy-Vee has already begun distributing vaccines in Minnesota to long-term care facility staff and residents, and will soon offer vaccines at all Hy-Vee pharmacy locations in eight states through the CDC’s Phase 1A vaccine distribution plan.
