Mass Vaccination Event Coming to Mobile County
Mass vaccination event coming to Mobile County – 02.02.21
MOBILE – As part of a statewide effort to accelerate COVID-19 vaccination in Alabama, mass vaccination clinics will take place in each of the state’s public health districts next week. There is no cost to receive a vaccine, but everyone vaccinated must be in an eligible group, wear a mask and bring valid identification.
Mobile County is among the eight locations selected by the Alabama Department of Public Health to be a part of the initiative. This includes several hospitals in Mobile: Ascension Providence, Mobile Infirmary, USA Health and Springhill Medical. Dates, times, locations and other details about the sites are available by clicking on https://www.alabamapublichealth.gov/covid19vaccine/mass-clinics.html.
“Mobile County Health Department, in association with the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Alabama Hospital Association, is excited about this unified effort to vaccinate tens of thousands of people in Alabama in seven days. Thank you to all hospital administrators for coming together for the health and safety of Mobile County,” said Dr. Bernard H. Eichold II, Health Officer of Mobile County.
“This is a great opportunity for eligible residents to get vaccinated. If you meet the eligibility requirements, we urge you to please make an effort to get vaccinated next week. As health officer of Mobile County, we appreciate this community effort and are hopeful that federal supply will soon facilitate broader vaccination through private practice physicians, local pharmacies and national retailers.”
The Mobile County Health Department and Family Health, its primary care division, will conduct its own drive-through event on Monday, February 8, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Belsaw Middle School at 1650 Gartman Circle in Mount Vernon. It is a first-come, first-served event.
