Greene County Public Health COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic a Success

On Wednesday, March 31, Greene County Public Health held the first mass COVID-19 vaccination
clinic in Greene County. The clinic filled 1,170 appointment slots to give the Pfizer vaccination.
There were 45 volunteers and employees who worked this event through a collaboration of Greene
County Public Health, Wild Rose Casino – Jefferson, Greene County Medical Center, Rotary, local
pharmacies and the Greene County Medical Reserve Corps.
Director of Greene County Public Health Becky Wolf commented, “The clinic turned out very well.
People were leaving within 13 minutes of walking through the door, being screened, registering and
receiving their vaccine. Being able to host the clinic at an events center like the Wild Rose Casino
was great. They were very accommodating to our needs and helping us host the clinic for the
community. One of the greatest rewards from this event was seeing the smile on people’s faces that
they were finally able to get the vaccine. This is truly a historic event. The collaboration between all of
the community partners has been over the top to make this event successful.”
Moving forward Greene County Public Health will continue to give vaccines out of their office space at
the Greene County Medical Center. The vaccine will continue to also be available from other partners
in the county like local pharmacies and clinics. If you are interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine
from Public Health, please call 515-386-0564. The vaccine is being offered to everyone 16 years and
older. The availability of another mass clinic is based on if Greene County Public Health is allotted
another large surplus of the vaccine, which is unknown at this time.
Anyone who received their COVID-19 shot during this clinic will return April 21 to receive their second
dose of the vaccine. Participants received an appointment card with their appointment information
when they registered at the clinic and are asked to bring back an insurance card with them if they
didn’t bring their card to the first appointment.
