Governor Reynolds announced all Iowans will be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination in early April if there is enough supply. With demand for a shot expected to be high this year, the House has passed a bill allowing dentists to administer these vaccines. The bill just passed through Senate committees and is now eligible for floor debate. The House also passed a bill placing restrictions on what concepts can be included in diversity training for state workers and public school staff. The floor debate lasted four hours.
