Polk Co EOC Stakeholders Briefing - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Could you please specify who will be included in the expansion expected Jan. 11?
Is there a list for the schedule from ACIP
In regard to the 2nd vaccination If it's due within 28 days does it have to be right on day 28 or is there a window?
great. Thanks Frannie
Does a person need to be recovered for a certain amount of time from Covid before they receive their vaccine?
With the new strain do you foresee any changes needing to be made with regards to face to face gatherings at work, school, etc.?
Are there plans to vaccinate healthcare students on clinical rotations at the health systems and clinics throughout Polk county? The CDC definition of healthcare worker would seem to include them.
Does the current definition of "healthcare employee" in 1a include direct care workers in a residential setting taking care of mentally ill youth as well as our nurses in our facility? We provide mental health not necessarily physical health.
Does the expansion include emergency shelter direct staff?
Hello- Does the 1a expansion include Home and Community based wavier staff working with persons with disability?
As you work through your appts in a drive through manner, how do you have them wait the 15 (or more) minutes following the vaccination?
As a veteran, over age 55, would Polk County Health prefer I wait for the vaccine from the VA? Are the "Feds” behind in getting the vaccine distributed as compared to Polk County? Thank you.
I am looking for a list of the definitions of the different phases. Is there a list of the priority list.
Thank you, Helen. That was exactly my question.
The recommendation that if a person has a history of anaphylactic reaction and has an epipen that they need to get the vaccine at a location that can handle a reaction. Will there be a location that can meet this need for a direct care worker that wants to receive the vaccination?
Are the 2,900 "balance administered through PCHD" actually administered already? Or just allocated to that effort?
Timeframe/priority for vaccination of public safety first responders?
After January 11th, for school nurses as public health care professionals; will you be contacting districts of when they are available to be vaccinated as priority group?
Timeframe of vaccinations for teachers?
Can proof of employment include a letter, like previously stated?
What does it mean to say the new strain is 30 to 50 percent more infectious? Does that mean someone. it following mask protocols etc are 30-50 percent more likely to get infected?
Do you foresee a greater need for immunizers beyond what HyVee and Medicap can provide?
someone not following social distancing protocols
When the vaccine is finally available to the general public, how do you anticipate prioritizing within that large group? A lottery system? First-come first-served?
Thank you, Helen.
