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, 2,867,328 total COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in the state. A total of 2,759,742 have been administered to Iowans. 

A total of 128,550 individuals have started their two-dose vaccine series while 1,310,834 have completed their full two-dose series. The state's website says 117,110 people are fully vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. 

The state of Iowa has fully vaccinated 1,427,944 individuals.

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.

Hospitalizations

As of 10 a.m. Monday, hospitalizations in Iowa are at 81, a 24-hour decrease of one.

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

The website says 15 patients have been admitted in the last 24 hours, 20 are in the intensive care unit (ICU) and eight are on ventilators. 907 ventilators are available. 

The website says 39.36% of inpatient beds are available in the state and 385 ICU beds are available. 

The state website updates hospitalizations data nightly. 

Long-term care facilities

Four long-term care facilities are reporting outbreaks with 31 total cases among residents and staff. Four individuals are considered to be recovered as of Wednesday.

Resident deaths are at 2,369.

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 on Friday, June 11, 540 staff members at Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) facilities and 348 patients have tested positive for the virus. 

Of those cases, 539 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.
