I was not the only person in Iowa to eagerly jump on the train. A recent report found that about half of adults in the state of Iowa have completed the entire vaccination process. This means that half of the adult population have gotten their two COVID-19 shots. Now, the amount of Iowa residents who have gotten a COVID vaccine completely surpasses the numbers for flu season shots, according to Radio Iowa.
For a few weeks the vaccine has only be available to a select number of Iowa residents, but as reported by Vaccinate Iowa, that is changing. On April 6th, 2021 it was officially announced that all Iowans age 16 and above are now able to get the COVID vaccine.
Now, this will be the second time many people will have to celebrate Easter under the shadow of the pandemic. Many churches have adapted to this difficult challenge, and several of them in the Cedar Valley continue to adhere to the CDC restrictions.
