SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - The Siouxland District Health Department (SDHD) will soon be administering COVID-19 vaccines alongside area hospitals.
Tyler Brock, Deputy Director of SDHD, says right now hospitals in the area are the only ones receiving and administering the vaccines. He says that's because hospitals are the only ones who can store them properly.
Brock says this has worked well, but once the health department receives proper storage space they will be helping administer the vaccines, too.
He says they have already ordered an appropriate freezer to store the vaccines.
"The hospitals won't be doing as much vaccinating moving forward they will be allocating those vaccines from their storage to us," said Brock.
Brock says eventually they expect to get shipments of doses every week.
