Dubuque County COVID-19 Vaccine Update

The Delta variant (B.1.617.2) is currently the most common COVID-19 virus strain circulating around in the US, the region, and in Iowa.

  • The Delta variant spreads more easily than other variants and that is why COVID-19 cases are increasing in the US and in Iowa.
  • The CDC indicates that the currently available vaccines are effective against the Delta variant.

People who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are most at risk of getting, being hospitalized for, and dying from COVID-19.

  • The best way to stop the spread of the of all COVID-19 virus strains, including the Delta variant, is for unvaccinated people to get vaccinated.
  • If the COVID-19 virus strains continue to spread from person-to-person, new variants will continue to occur. COVID-19 vaccines are effective against the variants that are currently circulating, so all eligible people are urged to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
  • Getting vaccinated protects against the current virus strains and decreases the chances of a vaccine-resistant variant developing in the future.

COVID-19 vaccines are available:

  • At no cost

  • To people age 12 and up

  • No matter your immigration status

  • With or without health insurance
