Who is eligible to be vaccinated?

In addition to those age 55 and older and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, groups to be included for extended eligibility are people age 16 to 64 with high-risk medical conditions which include but are not limited to the following conditions:

USA Health/City of Mobile:
The City of Mobile has set up a drive-thru vaccination location at the Mobile Civic Center through a partnership with USA Health, which has developed an online tool so people can show their interest in receiving a COVID-19 vaccination.
Those who would like to receive the COVID-19 vaccine can sign up online at https://c19vaccine.southalabama.edu/ This will only let USA Health know people are interested in receiving a vaccine. It will NOT generate an appointment for vaccination.
Information provided through the online tool will be used to contact those who want the vaccine based on two factors: When eligibility of certain groups is approved by the Alabama Department of Public Health and when USA Health has received enough vaccine to begin giving the shots to those who are eligible.
When someone becomes eligible to receive the vaccine and supply is available, USA Health will email or text those who signed up for the registry a link to electronically schedule a vaccine appointment. The link must be used within 24 hours or that place on the list will be given to the person waiting next in line.
Right now, only approved groups including healthcare workers and those who are age 75 and older, can schedule appointments for the drive-through clinic at the Mobile Civic Center. No one will be admitted to the vaccine clinic at the Mobile Civic Center without a prior appointment.
