Dubuque County: 19 New Cases, 14 Recoveries, and No New Deaths.

Iowa: 466 New Cases, 644 Recoveries, and No New Deaths.

When will Phase 1B vaccinations begin in Dubuque County?

February 1st is the Dubuque County Incident Management Team's goal; however, due to unknown vaccine allocations and supply, that date is not a guarantee. Vaccine allocations and availability will also influence where the vaccines are allocated locally.

The incident management team intends to follow Phase 1B's Tier 1 guidance and start with residents age 65 and over (50% of vaccine allocation), first responders, and PK-12 school personnel (50% of vaccine allocation).  The goal is to finish Phase 1A (healthcare workers) this week and begin Phase 1B next week.

As the incident management team works with local partners to begin Phase 1B, there are multiple planning challenges:

  • Unknown vaccine allocation
  • Unknown exact date of vaccine arrival
  • Unknown Biden Administration decisions regarding National Pharmacy Partnership execution (and other vaccine-related issues)
  • State-level guidance changes (Iowa Department of Public Health and/or the Governor’s office)

Additional information will be made available as soon as possible regarding Phase 1B.  Thank you for your patience.  For more information, visit
