HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville Hospital officials have confirmed to News 19 that the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic will be open as scheduled for Tuesday, February 16.
The appointment-only clinic will be open normal hours – 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
People with appointments Tuesday who are not able to make it, have been rescheduled for Thursday at the exact same time.
“For those who couldn’t make it today because of weather, or their street was frozen, they’ll just come Thursday at the exact same time. No need to call. No need to do anything different. So, if they were scheduled at 2:00 today and could not come for any reason, they just come on Thursday at 2:00 and we’ll have them already scheduled and ready to go,” said Tracy Doughty, senior vice president.
Initially, the clinic was closed Monday, but hospital officials decided to open the clinic during a break in the winter weather.
Around 400 people received a dose during the limited Monday hours. Huntsville Hospital officials say they contacted local school district officials and the City of Huntsville to have people come to the clinic to get vaccinated.
“Vaccines are very important to getting back to normal and why waste a day so we reached out to the school systems and the city and did our best to get as many folks we could done from those lists of essential employees,” Doughty said.
Everyone who was supposed be vaccinated Monday as been rescheduled for Wednesday at the same time.
