I want to thank Dickinson County Public Health and Director Katy Burke for the great job of getting the county’s COVID-19 vaccination program up and running. It was easy to register via the Lakes Regional Healthcare website and set up an appointment online. The process of getting the shot at public health at the appointed time ran smoothly — sign-in, wait in a quickly moving, socially distanced line, get the injection in a private setting, wait in the waiting room for 15 minutes and leave. Everyone involved was cordial and efficient. I write this because the news is filled with so many complaints about the vaccine in Iowa. We are very fortunate in this county to have the process moving forward and running smoothly.
