Gov. Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) announced Friday, Jan. 29, that starting Feb. 8, ADPH will extend eligibility for COVID-19 vaccinations to include people 65 or older and additional groups of front-line workers.

The Vaccine Allocation Plan is available at www.alabamapublichealth.gov/covid19vaccine/assets/adph-covid19-vaccination-allocation-plan.pdf.

The additional priority groups will add more than 1 million people who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination in Alabama. While just under 2 million people will qualify to receive the vaccine, the state continues to receive only about 100,000 doses each week.
