COVID-19 Registration Appointments

How many of us know we can serve our community in many ways, and one way we can serve during the COVID-19 pandemic is to protect ourselves and others by receiving one of the COVID-19 Vaccines. By receiving the vaccine, we free up health care resources for those in need and others with at-risk health conditions.

Now you may be asking yourself whether the vaccine is safe? Contrary to what you may have heard, the COVID-19 vaccine will not give you COVID-19. According to Phase III data from Pfizer Biotech and Moderna, the vaccine is safe and more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19 after two doses* .Yes, it is absolutely necessary for each person receiving the Biotech Pfizer and Moderna vaccine to receive the first and second dose to become fully vaccinated.

In an effort to increase the number of persons receiving the vaccine, COVID-19 Registration Pop-Up Sites are being sponsored through The Tuscaloosa County EMA. There will be one such Pop-Up Site on today, March 26, 2021, at the Alberta Baptist Church Parking Lot, from 8 a.m. - 5p.m.(Weather Permitting) The church is located at 2210 University Blvd, Tuscaloosa, Alabama. In the event your schedule will not permit you to attend this Registration Pop-Up Site, you can schedule an appointment through one of the following:

  • DCH Regional Medical Center
  • Tuscaloosa County Health Department
  • All Walmart and Sam's Club Stores in the area
  • CVS Pharmacies
  • Veterans - Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center
  • Maude Whatley Health Services

Eligibility must be verified prior to scheduling your vaccination; therefore, please check and verify before scheduling. Getting the vaccine not only helps protect you, but also those around you who are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine or are in the at-risk group.
