Hundreds Line Up for Drive Through Coronavirus Vaccination Clinic in Montgomery
On Saturday, a drive-through coronavirus vaccination clinic took place in Montgomery, at the old Montgomery Mall.
People 75 years old and older, healthcare workers, and first responders were eligible to receive the vaccine.
Officials administered Moderna coronavirus vaccine. They expected to have 1,000 doses, but were actually able to give out 1,100.
There are plans to have at least eight such vaccination sites across Alabama in the coming weeks.
People who received the vaccine will return on February 27 to receive their second shot.
At 3 p.m., officials had vaccinated 670 people, keeping pace to distribute all shots by 9 p.m.
“To anybody that’s hesitant don’t be hesitant and don’t be afraid listen to science and get that vaccination in your arm as quick as you possibly can get it,” said Mary Scott, one of the first in line to get vaccinated Saturday.
