Alabama Health Officials Prepare For The Johnson & Johnson VaccineThe Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine was recently issued Emergency Use Authorization by the US Food and Drug Administration but Dr. Scott Harris, the state's health officer, has no idea how many doses Alabamians will have access to. According to the article "Alabama Vaccine Allotments Shift, Health Officials Prepare for Johnson & Johnson Vaccine" by WHNT, unlike Pfizer and Moderna, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine would not be pre-positioned for shipping. With vaccines becoming more available, Dr. Harris is afraid that some people would favor Pfizer and Moderna's 95% effectiveness over Johnson & Johnson's 72%.

Huntsville Hospital was recently informed that they would be receiving 1,000 doses a week. That's less than half of their original allocation; this is reportedly due to a lack of availability. Dr. Harris urges residents to take the vaccine they are offered and not wait around thinking one is better than the other.

According to the ADPH, Walmart is widening the number of locations where the vaccine is available. More than ten locations, mainly in the south of Alabama, are now offering the vaccine. CVS is going to begin providing vaccinations in a few communities, including Moulton. Dr. Harris also warns that people shouldn't be paying for vaccines.
