Community Vaccination Clinic to get additional doses

Huntsville Hospital is pleased to report that the State has increased the supply of COVID-19 vaccine allocated to our Community Vaccination Clinic. Beginning Monday, March 8, the hospital will receive enough of the Pfizer vaccine for 2,500 new doses per week. In recent weeks, the clinic at John Hunt Park had received a smaller allocation.

There are more than 25,000 people on Huntsville Hospital’s vaccine waiting list. With the new allocation starting next week, the hospital has reopened its online portal for eligible persons to be added to the waiting list. Visit huntsvillehospital.org for more information. You will be called when a vaccination slot is available. Please anticipate that it could take several weeks before an appointment is confirmed.

We will continue our efforts to vaccinate as many people as we can, but we continue to recommend that you explore every avenue available to get your vaccine. You can check the Alabama Department of Public Health website (https://dph1.adph.state.al.us/covid-19/) for information on who has been approved for administering vaccines in your area.
