COVID-19 Response Team adjusting hours at Festival Centre
MOBILE, Ala. — While other MCHD locations will be closed on New Year’s Eve, our COVID-19 Response Team will be open Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at its vaccination and testing clinic at the Festival Centre. The staff is in Suite 101-A at the shopping complex located at the intersection of Airport Boulevard and Montlimar Avenue. The clinic will be closed Saturday, January 1.
Because of the recent increase in positive COVID-19 cases, the Response Team will be adjusting its hours starting on January 3. The clinic will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays.
The testing and vaccinations will also be offered from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. The location will be closed on Sundays.
Those coming for their booster shot should bring the CDC vaccination card that was presented to them after their primary shot. If you no longer have the card, please be prepared to wait for the MCHD staff to retrieve your information from the statewide vaccination system.
Individuals requesting a molecular test (Abbott ID Now) or a PCR test (through LabCorp) for personal preference or for travel must be tested at a Family Health location. Appointments for these specific tests may be made by calling 251-690-8889.
For those wishing to make an appointment to receive COVID-19 vaccine or a rapid test, MCHD is now offering Moderna vaccinations at several of its Family Health locations conveniently located throughout Mobile County. To secure a time to receive the shot, please call 251-690-8889.
Parents will need to sign a consent form for any person under 18 who wishes to receive the Pfizer vaccine. The parent does not have to be present, but a signed consent form is required.
