Q: Where can I get the vaccine in Alabama?

A: Visit Vaccine Home to learn how to get vaccinated.

Q: Where can I find data on distribution of the vaccine in Alabama?

A: Alabama's COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Dashboard (shortened link: arcg.is/OrCey) details the number of vaccines delivered and administered to Alabama and dispensed, as well as, information about the demographics of those receiving COVID-19 vaccination in Alabama.

The COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Dashboard can also be accessed on the COVID-19 Dashboard Hub (shortened link: arcg.is/0brSGj). This provides easy access to the Vaccine Distribution, Data and Surveillance, and School Dashboards through tabs at the top.

Q: Can someone volunteer to assist with the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine?

A: Yes. Thank you for wanting to help with the state's vaccine rollout efforts. ADPH is actively recruiting and welcoming volunteers to assist with COVID-19 vaccination clinics throughout the state. Persons who wish to volunteer are asked to email their contact information to thresa.dix@adph.state.al.us.

Q: Can I take a flu vaccine at the sane time I take the COVID-19 vaccine or do I need to wait?

A: COVID-19 vaccines were previously recommended to be administered alone, with a minimum interval of 14 days before or after administration of any other vaccines. This was out of an abundance of caution during a period when these vaccines were new and not due to any known safety concerns. COVID-19 vaccines may now be administered without regard to timing of other vaccines. This includes simultaneous administration of COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines on the same day, as well as co-administration within 14 days. Additional information is available from the CDC.
