Shelton State CC to Host Free COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic in Tuscaloosa, Alabama
Tuscaloosa-area residents who wish to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine can do so at Shelton State Community College at the end of the month.
The college is partnering with the Alabama Department of Public Health to host a free vaccine clinic Wednesday, Aug. 25. Participants can visit the Martin Campus from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to get the first dose of the vaccine.
“Due to the surplus of COVID-19 vaccinations yet to be administered and marked increase in infections in the state, we have been asked by our state health officials to host vaccination clinics at our ACCS colleges during this critical period," read a statement from the Alabama Community College System.
Both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be available, though the Moderna shot will only be available to participants who are at least 18 years old.
Pfizer shots will be available for participants ages 12 to 17.
Any participants who are under the age of 19 must bring a completed and signed registration packet from a parent or guardian, authorizing them to get the vaccine. To receive a packet, contact NorQuina Rieves.
The second dose will be administered at another vaccine clinic on Wednesday, Sept. 15. The same location and time frame applies.
