Tyson to Offer COVID-19 Vaccinations at Meatpacking Plants


WATERLOO, Iowa - Tyson Foods is gearing up to vaccinate its workers for COVID-19.

Several Tyson meatpacking plants in Iowa experienced severe outbreaks earlier this year, which has led to numerous lawsuits.

The company is now providing mobile clinics to offer on-site vaccinations to workers at its plants.

Iowa will start allowing meatpacking workers to receive vaccines on February 1st.

The mobile clinics are a partnership with Arizona based Matrix Medical Network.

Tyson has plants in six Iowa cities and is following state guidelines for administering doses.

Iowa announced earlier this week that phase 1B of its vaccine distribution plan include people working at meatpacking plants.
