COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Mercy Iowa City COVID-19 Vaccine Pre-Registration

As Mercy Iowa City streamlines our COVID-19 vaccination efforts, we are identifying eligible patients who would like to register to receive COVID-19 vaccine. Our team is dedicated to helping you stay well and wants you to be informed as vaccines become available.

If you would like to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, please fill out this COVID-19 Vaccine Pre-Registration form. We will use this information to schedule vaccination appointments as quickly as possible. This is not a form to schedule an appointment. Mercy Iowa City is contacting patients directly with information on how to schedule an appointment.

Please know as we extend appointment availability, the supply of COVID-19 vaccines remains extremely limited. We continue to work with our local county public health departments and the Iowa Department of Public Health to receive more doses as they become available.

We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing more patients soon!

We know there are still many questions about COVID-19 vaccination. You can download a flyer with some of these frequently asked questions here.

If you are not yet eligible to get the vaccine, please know we are working closely with the Iowa Department of Public Health and county public health departments, which are managing vaccine distribution in our state and county.

CDC announces Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) made some significant changes to its Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People.

According to the CDC, people are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 more than two weeks after they have received the second dose in a two-dose series (like Pfizer or Moderna), or more than two weeks after they receive a single dose (like Johnson & Johnson/Janssen).

They have also recommended fully vaccinated people can:

  • Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing.
  • Visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing.
  • Refrain from quarantine and testing following a known exposure if asymptomatic.

Please know these recommendations do not apply to healthcare settings, including Mercy Iowa City hospital and Mercy clinics. All individuals, including colleagues and patients, should continue to wear a mask and socially distance.

Future communication will follow if these recommendations change. The CDC also recommends you should still take steps to protect yourself and others. Please review the flyer below for more information.

Mercy Iowa City remains committed to stop the spread of COVID-19 and we appreciate your commitment to keeping our patients and community safe.
