The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) announced new dates for the Alabama National Guard (ALNG) vaccine clinics, which will include a finite amount of single-dose Johnson and Johnson shots.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed off on the National Guard setting up mobile clinic sites in under-served and rural counties around the state. ADPH, as well as the Alabama Emergency Management Agency and local EMA staff, are working with the ALNG to administer vaccinations to eligible people who live in these areas.

The Johnson and Johnson vaccine is unlike the typical Moderna and Pfizer shots, as it only requires one dose to be fully effective. The ALNG will have 200 doses of this vaccine on hand but it will only be available to those who have not received any vaccinations yet.
