ADPH Announces Plans For COVID-19 Vaccination 

COVID-19 numbers arent exactly optimal in Alabama or nationwide. There has been lots of talk about a vaccine and the ADPH has announced its vaccine plans.

Set to largely serve critical populations, the Alabama Department Of Public Health announced their plans for COVID-19 vaccination distribution. ADPH says that the vaccination could be available to the public as early as the end of the year.

The vaccination distribution plan has three phases. It will also be free, so no worries about having to pay for the vaccine.

According to ABC 33/40, ADPH said the three phases will go as follows:

  • In Phase 1, potentially limited doses of vaccine will be available and they will be targeted to those at highest risk and highest risk of exposure, first responders and healthcare workers who care for those with critical needs.
  • In Phase 2, large numbers of doses will be available, and supply is likely to meet demand. Educational efforts will target critical populations who were not vaccinated in Phase 1.
  • In Phase 3, there is likely to be a sufficient supply and all unvaccinated groups will be targeted. Special attention will be directed to populations or communities with low vaccine coverage.

The Alabama Department of Public Health has a 46-page document outlining this vaccination plan. Within this document, they state that initially available COVID‐19 vaccines will either be approved as licensed vaccines or authorized for use under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
