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.
Last week another 44,328 Alabamians received COVID-19 vaccinations, a 71 percent increase from the week before.
Rising vaccinations are welcomed news as Alabama hit yet another COVID-19 hospitalization record on Monday, and during the two weeks ending Sunday, the state saw more new cases added than during any previous two-week period since the start of the pandemic.
