Gov. Kay Ivey on Tuesday will receive her second and final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Alabama State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris and the state’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Mary McIntyre will also be receiving their second and final doses of the vaccine.

The governor, Harris and McIntyre received the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on Dec. 21, 2020.
