Governor says all Iowans could be eligible for COVID-19 vaccine by April 5

JOHNSTON, Iowa (WGEM) -- During her news conference on Wednesday, Gov. Kim Reynolds said all Iowans could be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine by early April.

Reynolds said as long as Iowa's vaccine allocation continues to increase as expected, beginning April 5 all Iowans will be eligible to receive a vaccine.

"Today I'm announcing that all Iowans will be eligible for vaccinations starting Monday, April 5th as long as the vaccine allocation increases as we've been told and as we are expecting," Reynolds said. "Getting vaccinated is the most important thing that each of us can do to ensure that our state's recovery from COVID-19 is both strong and sustainable we all want life to get back to normal. For our businesses to rebound for our high school seniors to graduate together our church communities to gather again fully in person and our families to be reunited all these things are possible and soon but like everything else over this past year, it will depend on all of us doing our part for the greater good."

Reynolds plans to announce more details on the signup process once she hears from the federal government next week.
