IOWA – According to the statement, Hy-Vee offers both the Pfizer and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at the Iowa State Fair.
Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is available to individuals 12 years of age and older. Janssen vaccines are available for individuals 18 years of age and older, and require a single-dose injection. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine requires two doses that should be administered at least 21 days apart.
About a hundred people have been vaccinated at the fair so far, and the surge of the delta variant is the driving force behind the inoculations.
Hy-Vee will set up shop near the Grand Avenue gate every day of the State Fair from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Officials say that there is no appointment necessary to receive either vaccine.
