Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

COVID-19 Ordering Notification

The original COVID-19 program is no longer available. As such, the government has stopped the ordering mechanism for the COVID-19 vaccines and ancillary supplies. All ordering widgets and links have been removed from ImmPRINT. The U.S. Government has a new effort in place to increase the access of COVID-19 Vaccine to uninsured/underinsured adults. This program is called the COVID-19 Bridge Access Program. This effort is designed to provide a temporary bridge of accessibility to COVID-19 vaccination for adults without insurance. This program will be available in mid to late September 2023. Please see COVID-19 Bridge Access Program for more information.

The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) continues to provide guidance as well as testing and vaccines to Alabamians after the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, which ended May 11, 2023.

The ending of the Public Health Emergency does not change which conditions or laboratory results are mandated to be reported in Alabama. SARS-CoV-2 results and COVID-19 diagnoses are still reportable in Alabama.

Protect Against COVID-19

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to it. Learn more on How to Protect Yourself and Others and Knowing Your Exposure Risk from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

For the best protection against severe COVID symptoms, stay up to date on your vaccines and get tested if you develop cold or flu-like symptoms.

Home Tests

Beginning September 25, 2023, every U.S. household can again place an order to receive four more free COVID-19 rapid tests delivered directly to their home using the program. Before you throw out "expired" tests, check to see if your COVID-19 tests' expiration dates have been extended. Visit the CDC for more information on at-home testing.
