BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - New mobile COVID vaccination clinics run by the National Guard will open to help get doses to some of you who live in more rural counties.

The clinics will open in 24 counties with two teams of National Guard members rotating through each county.

At this time, appointments are not required, and the sites will open 9 am to 5 pm. The Pfizer vaccine will be given free of charge.

State health leaders say to make sure you double check the location before you arrive because some may change as we get closer to start dates because of things like weather or spacing.

They hope that these clinics will help more people have equal access to this COVID Protection.

“We have prioritized our highest SVI counties. Many in the Black Belt and the Wiregrass, but this is a big part of how we get to vaccine equity,” said Dr. Scott Harris, ADPH.

Shots will be given 4 days a week, Tuesday - Friday. Teams will spend 3 weeks working through the list of counties. At the end of the three weeks, they’ll start over working their way through each county to give people their second dose.

The Pfizer vaccine will be administered at the clinics located in Barbour, Bullock, Butler, Choctaw, Clarke, Coffee, Conecuh, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Dallas, Greene, Hale, Henry, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Monroe, Perry, Pike, Russell, Sumter, Washington and Wilcox counties.
