National Month of Action Begins Today–Goal is 70 Percent COVID-19 Vaccination
The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) joins in encouraging everyone in the state to work toward the goal of having 70 percent of U.S. adults getting at least one COVID-19 vaccination by July Fourth. President Biden announced the National Month of Action initiative which encourages national organizations, local government leaders, community-based and faith-based partners, businesses, employers, social media influencers, celebrities, athletes, colleges, young people, and thousands of volunteers across the nation to work together to get their communities vaccinated. Decreasing numbers of Alabama residents are being vaccinated even though vaccines are available, so promotions and actions are needed now to defeat COVID-19.
On-Site Vaccination Clinic Toolkit
On-site vaccination clinics are a critical tool to make vaccinations as accessible as possible to local communities. The “We Can Do This” campaign has created a toolkit that provides a roadmap for community organizations, employers, and other groups to work directly with vaccine providers to set up vaccination clinics in places people know and trust. The toolkit can be accessed here: https://wecandothis.hhs.gov/onsite-vaccination-clinic-toolkit?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
ADPH COVID-19 Dashboard Changes Take Effect June 7
Along with decreases in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths, ADPH will be updating its dashboard less frequently. Effective June 7, the Data and Surveillance Dashboard will update on Monday, Wednesday and Friday; the Vaccine Distribution Dashboard will update on Tuesday and Thursday; and no weekend updates will be made. Additional information may be provided in the future as ADPH gathers more data on the pandemic.
