20,000 of Alabama’s 128,175 COVID vaccines have been administered; ADPH launches new tracker


#Slightly more than 20,000 of #Alabama’s 128,175 allotment of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered, according to a new tracker launched by state health officials.

The #Alabama #Department of #Public #Health’s new dashboard shows the state administered 8,986 vaccinations for the week ending #Dec. 20 and another 11,368 for the week ending #Dec. 27. The vast majority of the vaccinations – roughly 18,000 – were #Pfizer’s vaccine. The remainder were from #Moderna. #Vaccines are being administered at 90 sites around the state.

The information is part of ADPH’s COVID-19 #Vaccine #Distribution #Dashboard here.

The state is currently in the first phase of its vaccine distribution which covers frontline healthcare workers and those living or working in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. The state’s initial allotment of vaccine will cover less than half of the 300,000 #Alabamians that fall into the first category.

#Additional allocations of the vaccines – both of which require two-doses roughly 21-28 days apart – are expected to arrive on a weekly basis. ADPH said it will post on its website when the vaccine pool expands.

“We want to manage people’s expectations appropriately and remind the public that not everyone can access vaccine at this time. #For the #New #Year’s holiday and beyond, I encourage people to please stay home and keep their events short in duration, outside when possible, and only with everyone wearing masks,” #State #Health #Officer #Dr. #Scott #Harris said.

ADPH has no specific timetable as to when members of the general public can be vaccinated.
