The first COVID-19 vaccine doses in the Quad Cities are now in the arms of some Genesis Health System employees.
Tuesday morning, Genesis administered their first batch of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine some front-line workers. A doctor and a registered nurse were the first to receive it Tuesday morning at Genesis Convenient Care in Davenport.
The vaccine is specifically available for employees who provide care to COVID-19 patients. Genesis says it has received 1,000 doses of the vaccine for its Iowa hospitals and 500 doses for its Illinois hospitals in the Quad Cities region.
Another COVID-19 vaccination site for employees is located at Genesis Medical Center in Silvis.
