Due to the overwhelming number of calls for vaccination appointments, we are unable to return all of the calls. If you have called and left your information, YOU ARE ON THE WAIT LIST. There is no need to continue calling. We will schedule vaccination appointments from the wait list in the order the calls were received. Appointments will be made based on our weekly allocations from the state. Expect lengthy delays for a call back for your vaccination appointment.
Clayton County is allocated a certain amount of vaccine weekly by the State of Iowa. We have no control over how much we receive and are doing our best to manage the vaccination clinic volumes based on the amount allocated.
If you would like to be placed on the vaccination wait list, please call our scheduling line at 563-252-5571. Again, only one call is necessary.
GMHC will continue to screen all of our patients and visitors even after you’ve been vaccinated. The vaccine is 95% effective two weeks after the 2nd dose is received. It is still unknown how long the vaccine will provide protection from COVID-19.
Your best protection from COVID-19 will be a combination of getting vaccinated, and continuing to wear a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, avoiding crowds, and washing your hands often.
