DES MOINES Co., Iowa (KWQC) - Officials with the Des Moines County Health Department say they anticipate scheduling another COVID-19 vaccination clinic this week. They also said they’re continuing to call those who are on their waitlist.

“There are over 3,000 people on the waitlist and we are calling people in the order we received their information once we receive a vaccine allocation,” officials said in a Facebook post. “Anyone who called our COVID scheduling line has been placed on the waitlist. Unfortunately, with the number of people on the list it will take some time to get everyone vaccinated.”
