Iowa's Largest Hospital Vaccinates More Than 1,000 People in a Day

IOWA CITY, Iowa - University of Iowa Health Care is trying to set the bar in delivery of COVID-19 vaccines.

The hospital vaccinated more than 1,000 newly eligible people Wednesday.

All the recipients were part of the latest expanded phase which includes non-medical frontline workers and people 65 and older.

The hospital says there were no lines and no one spent more than 20 minutes in the building getting vaccinated.

UIHC has set up a process that allows resident to contact the hospital to arranged appointments for vaccinations, although it does not accept direct phone calls.

Most vaccine providers have stressed there's a very limited supply of doses while still offering vaccines to the expanded 1B phase of eligibility.
