IDPH Launches Vaccine Dashboard and Provider Locator Tool

The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) has launched two new features on the state’s COVID-19 website. A vaccine administration dashboard and vaccine provider locator tool deliver a statewide view of the COVID-19 vaccine effort in Iowa.

Vaccine Administration Dashboard


 The dashboard includes data visualizations which include key metrics such as:

  • Number of individuals who have received one dose or both doses
  • Total doses administered by recipient county of residence and by provider county
  • Administration rates by age group, sex, race, and ethnicity

Vaccine Provider Map


Vaccine remains in very short supply. As vaccine supply increases, this tool makes finding local vaccine provider information easily accessible to Iowans. Each provider included manages their own vaccine information and scheduling. IDPH is working with vaccine providers to update websites and phone numbers. Not all vaccine providers listed on this website will have vaccines at this time, as supply remains limited.  Please check the facility website before calling.

Updated Allocation Information


 After meeting with the Biden Administration this week, and reviewing the current allocation cadence, IDPH has accelerated the timetable to allow for an increase in allocations. Beginning the week of February 1, and continuing through the week of February 15, the state will receive the below allocations (1st Dose) weekly:

  • 19,500 of Pfizer 
  • 25,800 of Moderna

IDPH also learned this week that approximately 64,000 doses of vaccine, originally allocated to the Long-Term Care Pharmacy Partnership Program, can be redistributed to the state’s priority populations. These doses will be sent directly to a limited number of stores to vaccinate individuals 65 years and older. IDPH will provide additional information on this opportunity soon.

Phase 1B which includes, persons aged 65 years and over, or tiered populations vulnerable to high risk of exposure or severity of illness, begins on Monday, February 1. Due to the limited supply of vaccines, it will take the State of Iowa many weeks to reach all individuals in Phase 1B before moving to the next Phase, which will include persons under the age of 65 with health conditions at an increased risk of severe illness.

 There continues to be a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine in Iowa. IDPH encourages Iowans to remain patient as more vaccine arrives in the weeks and months ahead. It is also critical to continue practicing the mitigation measures that can slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

  • Wear a mask or face covering
  • Practice social distancing with those outside your household
  • Clean your hands frequently with soap and water
  • Stay home if you feel sick
  • Get tested if you are exposed to, or have symptoms of COVID-19
