To expand access to the vaccine, Alabama’s community colleges are hosting the vaccination clinics at their campuses across the state. To date, 75 clinics have been held and 32 clinics are planned in the coming weeks.
“With more than 130 locations across Alabama, our 24 colleges are well-positioned to engage our communities in an effort to promote and provide the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Alabama Community College System (ACCS) Chancellor Jimmy H. Baker.
“Our colleges reach more than 150,000 students each year and we’re proud to do our part to encourage our students, faculty and staff, and communities to help end this pandemic by getting the COVID-19 vaccine.”
The clinics are being held on ACCS college campuses in partnership with community health partners including the Alabama Department of Public Health, Alabama Emergency Management Agency, local hospitals, pharmacies, and health departments.
Unless otherwise indicated, walk-in appointments are available and encouraged. The COVID-19 vaccine is free and all ACCS clinics are open to the general public.
