More Than 33,000 Sign Up for Vaccine Via Polk Online Portal

As Polk County health officials prepare to dispense an expected 5,500 doses of COVID-19 vaccines this week, county commissioners learned that more than 33,000 people have registered for the vaccine using an online portal that launched last Thursday, The Ledger reports. In all, 45,000+ people have signed up via phone line or online. Commissioners on Tuesday discussed usability issues involving the mobile version of the portal (which LkldNow described last week) and confusion about email verification.
