Vaccine Administrations:

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced today booster shots for all Americans will be available beginning the week of September 20. The announcement also stated booster shots would be available to fully vaccinated individuals 8 months after their second dose.

Cullman Regional has created an online scheduling system so that patients can self-schedule for a vaccine appointment.

Appointments are available by visiting:

  • Vaccines are available by appointment only. Appointment Dates/Times are only released five days prior to vaccine clinic days to make sure we have plenty of vaccines to administer for all appointments created. If no appointments are available, please check back the following day for more appointment openings.

Visitors to the Cullman Regional Medical Group Clinics must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status and only one visitor is allowed per patient; or two visitors per minor under the age of 16.

*Emergency Department Restrictions

  • Due to the influx of COVID positive cases and out of an abundance of caution, no visitors are allowed in the Emergency Department. Limited exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. In those limited exceptions, we will only allow (one) visitor/caregiver who will not be allowed to rotate with any other visitor during the patient’s stay in the Emergency Department to limit unnecessary exposures.

We appreciate your compliance with these regulations to keep our staff, patients and families safe.
