MASON CITY – CG Public Health is now accepting COVID-19 vaccination appointments for individuals aged 64 years or younger with underlying medical conditions. All previously eligible priority groups should continue to attempt sign up as well.  This decision came after assessing present demand from currently eligible priority groups in Cerro Gordo County.
