Cherokee County Office of Emergency Management Director Shawn Rogers says numerous calls from area residents regarding COVID-19 vaccinations have been coming into his office, all wanting to know one thing – “Where do I go, to be vaccinated?”
Rogers says the Cherokee County Health Department now has a pre-recorded message that states they are no longer accepting appointments – and that’s resulting in calls coming in to the Office of Emergency Management on a daily basis. Rogers went on to say that, he could at first provide people any information they needed – at this point the flow the information coming from the Alabama Department of Public Health to the county has become extremely limited.
The ADPH has setup 8 “Mega Vaccination Sites” across the Alabama – with the closest being about45 minutes away in Anniston.
Cherokee County currently has five locations administering COVID-19 vaccines:
– Deans Pharmacy / 256-927-5569
– Floyd Cherokee Medical Center / 256-927-1301
– Lakeside Primary Care / 256-266-1544
– Main Street Urgent Care (Centre) mainstreetfamilycare.com
– all in Centre –
– Complete Family Care (Leesburg) / 256-526-6926
All locations are administering vaccines by appointment only, and they’re based on vaccine availability. Please do not just show up expecting to be vaccinated. Call and check availability and they, in turn, will schedule an appointment for you as long as they have the supply to be able to do so.
