COVID-19 Vaccine

Who's Eligible?

Beginning April 5, all individuals age 16 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Alabama.

The Pfizer vaccine is the only COVID-19 vaccine currently approved for age 16 and older. Currently, our county health departments are giving the Moderna vaccine. Other providers, such as hospitals and some pharmacies, are giving the Pfizer vaccine. These other providers may also be offering the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which is currently not approved for those under 18 years of age. If you are 16 or 17 years of age, please check or contact the provider to see which vaccine is offered before scheduling your appointment.
