Vaccine Supply and Demand
States decide how to prioritize COVID-19 vaccines. In Iowa, there are two phases that involve nearly one million Iowans. The doses coming to the state from the federal government will be around 50,000 per week in February. While it’s expected to increase, it will be awhile until the supply begins to meet the demand. Teachers in pre-K through 12 are eligible for a vaccine, but there are concerns with bringing schools back to in-person learning now with limited vaccination.
