The hotline is for healthcare workers, people 75 years or older, and first responders, including law enforcement and firefighters to schedule an appointment for a free COVID-19 vaccination. View vaccination locations. Telephone calls are answered from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. seven days a week.

Due to massive call volume, callers to the COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling Hotline are encouraged to try their call again later if they get a busy signal. The hotline has received over 338,000 calls within the first few hours of operation. We are rapidly adding staff to assist callers and appreciate your patience.

Specific information, such as what to bring and what to wear, will be provided when appointments are made. Appointments at locations throughout the state are made first come, first serve. If wanting to be vaccinated at sites other than those listed, such as a private provider, individuals should contact those sites directly.

Governor Ivey's Amended Safer at Home Order - July 29, 2020

  • Amended Safer at Home Flyer-July 29, 2020 
    1. Extension of current order. The Safer at Home order will be extended through Monday, August 31, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. See paragraph 20.
    2. Masks. The current order’s mask requirement will continue. Beyond that, the new order contains a few tweaks to provide clarity in this area:
      1. Masks in schools. The current order’s provision concerning masks in schools speaks only to mask use by “employees.” Under the new order, students in “second grade or above” (including colleges and universities) will be required to wear masks in schools “to the greatest extent practicable” when in close contact with people from another household. See paragraph 14.c. (The “young-child” exception to the general mask requirement will be updated accordingly to mirror the second-grade cutoff. See paragraph 2.a(i).)
      2. Masks at sporting events. The current order requires people attending an athletic activity to wear a mask “at all times” except when a player or official is directly participating. Under the new order, mask use will be required at an athletic activity only when a person is within six feet of a person from another household. See paragraph 11.c. 
    3. Athletic facilities. The current order contains a paragraph entitled “limits on facility access,” which imposes an emergency occupancy rate and which requires closure of certain areas of an athletic facility, such as showers and lockers. See current paragraph 9.b. Under the new order, this paragraph will be deleted. The facility-access paragraph is unnecessary in light of the other sanitation and social-distancing rules that apply in athletic facilities.
