Good news for Mobile area educators.
Earlier this week, USA Health announced they will host a mass vaccination event at the Mobile Civic Center from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 13, focusing on educators.
All vaccine recipients will be required to have appointments.
How to Register?
Educators and people wanting to receive a vaccination can register at: https://c19vaccine.southalabama.edu/
USA Health expects to provide 2,000 vaccines on Saturday, more than any other provider in Mobile.
People in eligible groups other than educators who have registered with USA Health will receive appointments for Feb. 13 if they are available.
On February 8th, Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Public Health expanded criteria for those eligible to receive a vaccination.
The added categories include people 65 and older and additional frontline workers.
Frontline critical workers listed in the new statewide vaccination plan are as follows:
- First responders
- Corrections officers
- Food and agriculture workers
- U.S. Postal Service workers
- Manufacturing workers
- Grocery store workers
- Public transit workers
- People who work in the education sector (teachers, support staff, community college and higher education)
- Childcare workers
- Judiciary (including but not limited to) circuit judges, district judges and district attorneys
Fast and Efficient
USA Health’s online registry is a fast and efficient way for eligible people to arrange for appointments to be vaccinated at their vaccination center at the Mobile Civic Center. Currently, USA Health is providing approximately 1,000 vaccinations at the site each day, Monday through Friday, and will double that number for this event.
Since Dec. 15, 2020, USA Health has provided more than 12,000 COVID-19 vaccinations.
