HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The Huntsville Housing Authority (HHA) and Central North Alabama Health Services, Inc. (CNAHSI) are teaming up to host a pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Thursday, May 27.

The clinic will be held at the Cavalry Center, located at 2901 Fairbanks Street NW in Huntsville, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“There are barriers that make it difficult for some of our residents to get vaccinated. Common
impediments are a lack of transportation and internet,” stated Patrice Boodie, resident services supervisor for the HHA. “Efforts like this that consider the unique challenges presented to our community ensure that hard-to-reach communities are not left behind.”

While the clinic is aimed at ensuring those living in public housing have access to a coronavirus vaccine, all unvaccinated people are welcome. Officials will be administering the Moderna vaccine to those aged 18 and over. Participants are encouraged to schedule an appointment at 256-562-0344, but no appointment is required to receive a vaccine.
