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.

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:

  • Resume activities without wearing a mask or staying six feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
  • Refrain from quarantine and testing following a known exposure if asymptomatic.
  • Refrain from getting tested before or after travel within the United States, or self-quarantining after travel within the United States.

Please know these recommendations do not apply to health care 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.
