Ringgold County Hospital is encouraging everyone who is interested in being vaccinated for COVID-19 to contact Ringgold County Public Health at 641-464-0691.

As of Monday, April 5, 2021, all Iowans age 16 and above are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Those age 16-17 can receive only the Pfizer vaccine. Iowans age 18 and older can have the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines. 

With eligibility expanded to all Iowans, vaccine supply will be lower than demand for several weeks. Local public health departments, health care providers and pharmacies are working hard to vaccinate eligible Iowans as quickly as possible. Your patience during this time is appreciated. As vaccine supply increases, more appointments will be available and, eventually, every Iowan will be able to be vaccinated. IDPH remains in close contact with our federal partners to communicate Iowa’s need for additional vaccines.

IDPH continues to urge Iowans that while the vaccine is still a scarce resource, to practice virus mitigation efforts.

Please call Ringgold County Public Health at 641-464-0691 or HyVee Pharmacy 641-464-3300 if you are interested in receiving a Covid vaccine.
