COVID-19 Vaccine

Who's Eligible?

Those currently eligible for vaccine in Alabama are healthcare providers, nursing home residents, law enforcement officers, firefighters and persons age 75 and older.

Beginning February 8, people 65 or older and additional groups of critical workers became eligible to get the vaccine.

While the current vaccine supply is limited, it is necessary to prioritize vaccinations for those who are at the highest risk of getting the virus or becoming seriously ill. Alabama has worked with stakeholders and has followed guidelines provided by the federal government to develop Alabama's Allocation Plan.
