Buena Vista County

A top health official in northwest Iowa retired on Monday after working more than 23-years with Buena Vista County Public Health and Home Care. Pam Bogue worked first as a nurse and then administrator for the county health department. She previously worked in long-term care facility administration. Bogue talked to Siouxland Public Media’s Sheila Brummer about the past year of COVID-19, including mitigation efforts and Tyson Foods.

The Siouxland Community Health Center will be invited to join the Health Center COVID-19 Vaccine Program in the next six weeks.  This program directly allocates vaccines to supported health centers to ensure underserved communities and those disproportionately affected by COVID-19 are equitably vaccinated.
