Vaccine updates

The state officially administered more than 1 million doses on March 12. The state officially administered more than 1 million doses to Iowans on March 14. 

The state updated the vaccine dashboard on March 10 to include Johnson & Johnson doses into Iowa's vaccine totals. 

As of 10 a.m. Monday, 2,507,278 total COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in the state. A total of 2,412,555 have been administered to Iowans. 

A total of 219,507 individuals have started their two-dose vaccine series while 1,095,619 have completed their full two-dose series. The state's website says 96,533 people are fully vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. 

1,191,152 individuals have been fully vaccinated by the state of Iowa. 

Two doses must be administered for an individual to be counted as fully vaccinated for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. However, full immunity isn't achieved until two weeks after the second dose.

Johnson & Johnson is a single-dose vaccine, so individuals have full immunity two weeks after that dose.

As of 10 a.m. Monday, hospitalizations in Iowa are at 169, a 24-hour decrease of one.

The record for most hospitalizations was recorded on Wednesday, Nov. 18 with 1,527. 

The website says 21 patients have been admitted in the last 24 hours, 45 are in the intensive care unit (ICU) and 19 are on ventilators. 922 ventilators are available.

Long-term care facilities

One long-term care facility has reported an outbreak with 19 total cases among residents and staff. Recoveries as of Sunday morning are at 17.

Resident deaths are at 2,325.

The state said they will use both "contributing factor" and "underlying cause" when calculating deaths.

Long-term care facilities are removed from being on the outbreak list when no new cases are detected in 28 days. All data, excluding deaths, on the long-term care dashboard are an active number, not a running total, according to the Iowa Department of Public Health.

IDPH announced that several changes to the state website and how LTC data would be reported would start Friday, Jan. 8:

  • Previous reporting: The reporting method for the LTC dashboard included old positive cases in an LTC facility for previous outbreak status.
    • Example: If an LTC was in an outbreak status in April and then again in January, the positive case counts were captured for both outbreaks in the overall positive counts.
    • New reporting: The number now only reflects positive cases associated with the current outbreak.
  • Previous reporting: The reporting method for the LTC dashboard included old recovered cases in LTC for previous outbreak status.
    • Example: If an LTC was in an outbreak status in April and then again in January the recovered case counts were also captured for both outbreaks in the overall recovered counts.
    • New reporting: The number now only reflects positive cases associated with the current outbreak.

State-run facilities

As of noon Friday, 537 staff members at Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) facilities and 348 patients have tested positive for the virus. 

Of those cases, 536 staff and 344 patients are considered to be recovered.

DHS reported the death of a second resident due to virus complications on Jan. 7.

"Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the deceased," the agency said in a release on its website.

The document below details outbreaks at each facility and how DHS has responded to the pandemic in real-time. It also includes individuals that are considered to be recovered.
