Alabama Deploys Mobile COVID-19 Vaccination Units To Rural Areas


Richa Templin, an employee in the Jefferson County School District, received her dose at UAB.


Beginning Tuesday, March 23, the Alabama National Guard will deploy mobile COVID-19 vaccination units to 24 rural counties as part of an effort to reach underserved areas of the state.

The clinics will be open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and are open for all eligible Alabamians free of charge. The mobile units will administer at least 1,000 vaccinations per site, per day for a total of 8,000 doses each week, according to the governor’s office.

To receive a vaccine, you need to complete a consent form. The ADPH asks you print the form and bring it with you. If you forget the form or don’t have a printer, you’ll be provided with a form when you arrive.

The ADPH also asks that you review these five forms before you receive your first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
