MCHD making changes to COVID-19 clinic schedule
MOBILE, Ala. – The Mobile County Health Department’s (MCHD) COVID-19 Response Team will be making changes to its clinic schedule starting next week.
Because of decreased demand and competing priorities, all COVID-19 testing and vaccinations at the Keeler Memorial Building (251 North Bayou Street in Mobile) will cease on Monday, September 27, until further notice.
The public can continue to get the Pfizer vaccine (for those 12 and older), the Moderna vaccine (for those 18 and older) or Johnson & Johnson vaccine (for those 18 and older) at MCHD’s Newburn Building (248 Cox Street in Mobile facing Saint Stephens Road). The weekday hours are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Vaccine is also available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
Along with offering vaccine, the Newburn staff provides walk-in rapid testing during those same hours. Testing is free to all ages. Results are provided within 15 to 30 minutes while you wait. No appointments are necessary.
Individuals requesting a molecular test (Abbott ID Now) or a PCR test (through LabCorp) for personal preference or for travel must be tested at one of the Family Health locations. 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, MCHD is now offering first-dose and second-dose 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.
