MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Governor Kay Ivey Thursday announced the locations for the Alabama National Guard’s (ALNG’s) mobile vaccination clinics across 24 rural counties. As part of Ivey’s activation of the ALNG to support the state’s COVID-19 response, beginning March 23, the mobile vaccination teams will rotate through the designated counties. 

“Being from rural Alabama myself, ensuring folks in those counties have an easy way to get their COVID-19 vaccine is important to me. I am proud that our guardsmen stand willing to help our great state in any way, especially as we look to put this virus in our rearview mirror,” Ivey said. “I encourage everyone eligible to take advantage of this great resource, and please remain patient as we continue working to get our hands on as many doses as we are able from the federal government. Be sure to help get the word out to your family, friends and neighbors!” 

The ALNG is capable of fielding two mobile vaccination teams with a capacity of at least 1,000 vaccinations per site, per day (TuesdayFriday), for a total of 8,000 doses each week. The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH), local emergency management officials and law enforcement will also provide support.
