Update on Linn County’s response to COVID-19 presented by Tricia Kitzmann -Johnson and Johnson Vaccine:

On April 13, 2021, the CDC and the FDA recommended an immediate pause in use of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine after six reported U.S. cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the J&J vaccine.

The CDC and FDA are reviewed data involving six reported U.S. cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the J&J vaccine.

o In these cases, a type of blood clot called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) was seen in combination with low levels of blood platelets (thrombocytopenia).

o All six cases occurred among women between the ages of 18 and 48, and symptoms occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination.

As of April 23, 2021, 15 cases have been confirmed among women between the ages of 18 and 48.

On April 23, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have lifted the pause on the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) recommends that any vaccine provider in the state who has available Johnson & Johnson vaccine resume administration, effective immediately.

The CDC and FDA issued the following:

• Use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine should be resumed in the United States.

• The FDA and CDC have confidence that this vaccine is safe and effective in preventing COVID-19.

• The FDA has determined that the available data show that the vaccine’s known and potential benefits outweigh its known and potential risks in individuals 18 years of age and older.

• At this time, the available data suggest that the chance of Thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) occurring is very low, but the FDA and CDC will remain vigilant in continuing to investigate this risk.

• Health care providers administering the vaccine and vaccine recipients or caregivers should review the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers Administering Vaccine (Vaccination Providers)external icon and Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers, which have been revised to include information about the risk of this syndrome, which has occurred in a very small number of people who have received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine.

Vaccine:

This week, we received 4,810 prime doses. The state is no longer requiring an 80% vaccine utilization rate. Several counties the past several weeks has declined their vaccine allocation. This past week the state also requested less of the state’s allocation from the federal government. Vaccine supply steady and in some cases has increased with the federal pharmacy programs while demand has decreased.

Several of our vaccine providers are considering or have gone to walk-in vaccine clinics. This shift from making appointments to walk-in clinics will begin over the next week.

Community Clinics:

• Reutzel Pharmacy 24 hour clinic on April 17h018th – vaccinated 993

• April 15th — LCPH was on-site at Heart of Iowa Area Substance Abuse Council to vaccinated 27 residential clients

• April 17th- In collaboration with Young Parents Network a clinic for the Latino /Hispanic population vaccinated 96 individuals

• April 21st- LCPH will be on-site at Geneva Towers to vaccinated 43 residents

• April 24th — LPCH will be working with the Islamic Center vaccinated 27 individuals

• April 27th — In collaboration with the Catherine McCauley Center, a clinic will be held for the Refugee/Immigrant population

• MMC has completed their planned outreach clinics for the homeless population that included Willis Dady, Overflow, Catherine McAuley Center MC transitional housing, Safe Place and Catholic Worker House -

• Pending – ABBE center, Olivet Mission, Home Health

Many of our community members have told us they are waiting for their turn to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Others have said they are looking forward to scheduling an appointment when more appointments become available. While it seemed as though we’d never get there, vaccine supply HAS INCREASED significantly and vaccine appointments ARE AVAILABLE to any individual 16 and older.

Individuals 16 years of age and older wanting to receive a COVID-19 vaccine should now schedule an appointment for vaccine. For information on vaccine providers or additional assistance scheduling an appointment #DontWaitVaccinateLinn

In Linn County Vaccine Progress as of April 23, 2021

• 80.6% of the Linn County population age 75 and older had begun or completed COVID- 19 vaccination

• 82.1% of the Linn County population age 65 and older had begun or completed COVID- 19 vaccination

• 55.1% of eligible Linn County residents have either started or completed the vaccine series of Eligible Linn County residents are all residents 16 years of age and older, which is 180,375 people

• 43.8% of the entire Linn County population have either started or completed the vaccine series

LTCF & Group Homes: We continue to have no outbreaks at any of our group LTCF and group homes.

Our cases appear to remain steady with a daily average over the past 4 weeks ranging from 20-29 cases per day. LCPH continues to track and monitor these numbers. Admissions and hospitalizations saw a slight increase over the past several weeks however, the average number remains low in our county.
