211 Iowa Vaccine Navigation
Any Iowan, age 65 years and older, may call 211 for assistance in making an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination. During the process, 211 Vaccine Navigators will have the ability to schedule older Iowans into vaccine appointments, through a private scheduling portal, at Hy-Vee Pharmacies. Additional pharmacies may take part in this partnership in the future but for now, the program is exclusively with Hy-Vee.
The 211 call specialists will ask for seniors' names and age or birthdates, but will not ask for social security numbers, insurance or financial information. This phase will extend through the balance of the calendar year and over time, and as more vaccine becomes available, additional groups of Iowans who need help navigating the vaccine process will be able to contact 211 for assistance. Call specialists will be available 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.
