Mobile County Health Department Provides COVID-19 Vaccines Today | COVID-19 coronavirus news
The Mobile County Health Department COVID-19 Response Team has more opportunities to receive your vaccines today.
As with all MCHD COVID-19 events, this will follow a first come, first served format. No appointment will be made.
MCHD will offer the COVID-19 vaccine at Wilmer Hall Children’s Home (3811 Old Shell Road in Mobile) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. This will offer both the Pfizer mRNA vaccine (which has been approved for ages 12 and over) and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (which has been approved for ages 18 and over).
MCHD will offer the COVID-19 vaccine to Mobile County Church of Christ (9360 Louis Tillman Road in Grand Bay) from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. This will provide the Pfizer mRNA vaccine (which has been approved for ages 12 and up). This event is a community prevention program sponsored by the Fernland Community Action Group.
MCHD will offer the Pfizer mRNA vaccine (which has been approved for ages 12 and up) at the occupational health center. This facility is located near the Mobile Aeroplex in Brookley (2050 Michigan Avenue in Mobile). The vaccination clinic will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The COVID-19 response team now has three permanent locations to provide vaccinations and tests. These are available Monday through Friday.
The public could previously receive either the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (for ages 18 and over), Pfizer vaccine (for ages 12 and over) or the Moderna vaccine (for ages 18 and over) at the Keeler Memorial Building (251, North Bayou Street in Mobile) and the Newburn Building (248 Cox Street in Mobile). These clinics are open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
In an effort to better serve our community, MCHD has expanded its COVID-19 services to The Shoppes at Bel Air. MCHD has moved to the location previously occupied by the Forever 21 clothing store. The mall is located at 3299 Joe Treadwell Drive in Midtown Mobile. Entry will be limited to the exterior doors located between Dillard’s and H&M department stores. This clinic is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
In addition to offering the vaccine, the Keeler, Newburn and Bel Air sites also offer rapid walk-in tests. The test is free for all ages. Results are provided within 15 to 30 minutes while you wait. No appointment is necessary.
Those who come for their second booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna should bring the CDC vaccination card presented to them after their first injection. If you no longer have the card, be prepared to wait for MCHD staff to retrieve your information from the state immunization system.
Regarding COVID-19 testing, people requesting a molecular test (Abbott ID Now) or PCR test (via LabCorp) for personal preference or for travel should be tested on the Family Health site. Appointments for these specific tests can be made by calling 251-690-8889.
For those who wish to make an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, MCHD now offers Moderna first and second dose vaccinations at several of its family health centers conveniently located in Mobile County. To schedule a time to receive the hit, please call 251-690-8889.
