HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The state of Alabama has increased the supply of COVID-19 vaccine allocated to Huntsville Hospital Community Vaccination Clinic.

Huntsville Hospital officials say beginning Monday, March 8, the hospital will receive enough of the Pfizer vaccine to administer 2,500 more doses per week.

In recent weeks, the clinic at John Hunt Park had received a smaller allocation.

Huntsville Hospital officials say there are more than 25,000 people on their waiting list.

With the new allocation starting next week, the hospital has reopened its online portal for eligible persons to be added to the waiting list.

You will be called when a vaccination slot is available. Hospital officials said it could take several weeks before an appointment is confirmed.

“We will continue our efforts to vaccinate as many people as we can, but we continue to recommend that you explore every avenue available to get your vaccine,” said Huntsville Hospital officials.

You can check the Alabama Department of Public Health website for information on who has been approved for administering vaccines in your area.
