Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds says the state will get a boost in COVID-19 vaccine starting next week, however demand still far exceeds the current supply.
Iowa currently receives enough doses to vaccinate about 19 thousand Iowans per week.
Gov. Kim Reynolds said starting next week that number should increase by 16%.
But the number is still far below the amount needed to vaccinate Iowans in the next phase. This includes those ages 65 and older as well as first responders, child care workers, and school staff, a total of more than 600,000 people.
