COVID-19 Vaccine Registration

The Alabama Department of Public Health coordinates the timing and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines. As of May 13, 2021, individuals who are 12 years or older are eligible to receive the vaccine.

The most recent ADPH vaccination details can be found here.

DCH’s vaccination building is in the parking lot just west of DCH Regional Medical Center (scroll down for location map).

Vaccine appointments are normally available:

  • Friday, 7 a.m. - 5:50 p.m.

Important things to understand before you proceed:

  • A parent or guardian must accompany, and sign a consent form for, any individual between the ages of 12 and 17 who wishes to receive the vaccine.

  • This is a drive-through vaccination service only.
  • Following approval from the FDA, the CDC approved a certain groups of individuals to receive a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot. The list of groups, provided on the CDC website, is shown below.

    CDC recommends:

    • people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
    • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine atleast 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
    • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks, and
    • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting [health care workers] may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.
  • The registration form is being updated to reflect the groups eligible for the booster. For now, if you would like to receive the booster and are eligible based on the information above, then when you register click on the “Third vaccination (Booster)” option and in the drop down select “Yes.”
  • Please only register for your second dose or booster if you received your prior dose, of the Pfizer vaccine, at a different location. If you received your first vaccine at the DCH Vaccine Clinic, the staff will register you for the second dose when you come for your first dose.
  • If you need to cancel your appointment, please email your cancellation details to covid19vaccine@dchsystem.com.
