2/18/21 – Iowa Vaccination Scheduling

Not long ago, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds said state officials were considering a contract with Microsoft to develop a statewide coronavirus vaccination scheduling system.  Wednesday, the Governor said they are dropping the contract.

Reynolds told reporters yesterday it would be too disruptive to install a statewide system through Microsoft.

Reynolds says it will be quicker to use resources now on hand within the state.

While state officials dropped the idea of a call center, Reynolds says they haven’t eliminated the use of it, either.

Dropping the call center came just ten days after she said Microsoft was chosen and would have system set up in a few weeks.
