MOBILE, Ala. — In an effort to better serve our community, the Mobile County Health Department’s (MCHD) COVID-19 Response Team is expanding its services at the Newburn Health Center.
Starting this week, the staff is offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. This one-dose vaccine is available to those 18 and older.
The public can now get either the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the Pfizer vaccine (for those 12 and older) or the Moderna vaccine (for those 18 and older) Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. As with all MCHD COVID-19 events, this will follow a first-come, first-served format. No appointments will be taken.
The Newburn Health Center is located at 248 Cox Street in Midtown Mobile, across from USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital. The facility is at the intersection of Saint Stephens Road.
Along with offering vaccine, the Newburn staff is also providing walk-in rapid testing weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Testing is free to all ages. Results are provided within 15 to 30 minutes while you wait. No appointments are necessary.
