Mass COVID-19 vaccination clinics succeed in immunizing eligible people statewide

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Karen Landers, M.D.
(256) 383-1231

Mass vaccination clinics operated this week by selected hospitals in each of the eight public health districts throughout the state have reached large numbers of persons eligible for COVID-19 vaccine. The success of these clinics is a direct result of ongoing collaboration by a number of community partners including county emergency management agencies, public officials and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH).

Through the efforts of many hardworking volunteers and healthcare providers, at least 105,000 to 110,00 doses of COVID-19 vaccine per week have been administered in Alabama over the past three weeks. All the vaccine the state receives, both first and second doses, is being administered. Second doses for those vaccinated in this week's clinics will be given through the same process beginning 21 or 28 days from administration of the first doses, depending on the vaccine.

The Alabama Hospital Association provided these totals of vaccines given this week:

Anniston

Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Center - 5,000

Birmingham

University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital - 12,139

Dothan

Southeast Health - 6,100

Huntsville

Huntsville Hospital - 12,000

Mobile

University of South Alabama Hospital - 8,300 (This clinic continues through Saturday.)

Providence Hospital - 3,200

Mobile Infirmary - 3,325

Springhill Memorial Hospital - 7,500

Montgomery

Baptist Medical Center - 8,000

Selma

Vaughan Regional Medical Center - 5,000

Tuscaloosa

DCH Regional Medical Center - 5,889

Next week all sites will resume their normal clinics, but the additional vaccine supply for these mass clinics will not be available after this week. ADPH remains focused on providing vaccine to as many Alabamians as supply allows and ensuring a safe, effective vaccine experience for all recipients.
