  • Beginning April 5th those in Iowa ages 16 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Audubon County initially had only received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, a two-dose series separated by 28 days.  We have been notified that Audubon County will also be receiving 100 doses of the Johnson and Johnson single dose COVID-19 vaccine.  Both the Moderna and Johnson and Johnson vaccines are designed to prevent COVID-19 in those ages 18 and older, therefore in Audubon County, only those 18 and older will be eligible.  Audubon County has been guaranteed from the Iowa Department of Public Health on receiving at least 200 doses of Moderna weekly (enough to fully vaccinate 100 people).  At this time, the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is a single allotment with no guarantee on future doses.

  • Rural communities are wonderful places to live and work, which is why an estimated 57 million people – nearly one in five Americans – call them home. These small towns, farming communities and frontier areas are places where neighbors know each other, listen to each other, respect each other, and work together to benefit the greater good.
