WEST LIBERTY, Iowa — West Liberty Foods recently announced that it successfully conducted a COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic for its team members located in West Liberty, Iowa. The announcement came after the FDA approved and endorsed the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, which became immediately available for use in Muscatine County, Iowa.
With the help of the Iowa Department of Public Health and Trinity Muscatine Public Health, West Liberty Foods was able to distribute 965 vaccinations on March 5.
“Being considered an essential business during the Coronavirus Pandemic and beyond means we must continue to take the necessary precautions to protect our team members at every given chance,” said Ed Garrett, West Liberty Foods CEO. “We are beyond grateful and appreciative of the opportunity to distribute this much-needed vaccine to those who continue to go above and beyond for our organization and the food supply chain.”
West Liberty Foods is continuing to work with the county health officials at its other locations in Mount Pleasant, Iowa; Tremonton, Utah; and Bolingbrook, Ill.; to secure vaccines for its team members at these locations.
