East Alabama Medical Center announced in a press release Friday that they would begin rolling out vaccinations to area schools.

EAMC was able to include local first responders in the initial phase with employees and physicians and have begun simultaneously providing vaccines to residents age 75 and up. According to the press release, EAMC will also be working with area schools to provide vaccinations to teachers and other personnel,” P.R. and Marketing Director, John Atkinson said.

The vaccine rollout has sparked many difficult questions and to help answer some of those questions, EAMC has developed a Q&A website. Here’s the link to the Q&A: https://bit.ly/3qq81yR
