Prevention & Wellness expanding services at Tillman’s Corner
MOBILE, Ala. — The Prevention & Wellness directorate is one of the cornerstones of traditional public health services of the Mobile County Health Department (MCHD). Since 1816, public health in Mobile County has been one of education, prevention, and the promotion of wellness.
To help accomplish this goal, MCHD has converted space located at the back of the Southwest Mobile Health Center (5580 Inn Road in Tillman’s Corner). Starting on Wednesday, June 1, the renovated section will be called the Southwest Public Health Center.
Dr. Rendi Murphree, an Epidemiologist who oversees MCHD’s Bureau of Disease Surveillance and Control, said Prevention & Wellness will offer free COVID-19 primary and booster vaccinations (either Pfizer or Moderna) and rapid testing at the Southwest Public Health Center.
This will be the third location for such services to be offered by MCHD. It will join the Festival Centre shopping center (Suite 101-A; corner of Airport Boulevard and Montlimar Drive) and the Public Health Response Unit located at the Semmes Health Center (3810 Wulff Road East).
Services are available weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are no out-of-pocket costs. While no appointment is required to receive COVID-19 vaccine, individual appointments must be made for rapid testing online at this link — https://appointments.mchd.org.
