The University of Alabama at Birmingham is seeking temporary workers for its vaccine locations on campus, at UAB Highlands, Parker High School and the Hoover Met. Volunteers are needed for non-clinical positions at the Hoover Met site.
UAB is set to open its third community vaccination site on Feb. 11 at Parker High School in downtown Birmingham. It joins UAB Hospital-Highlands and the Hoover Met in serving all vaccine-eligible residents of the state, having expanded its vaccination program on Feb. 5 beyond its patients, Cooper Green Mercy Health Services patients and Jefferson County residents.
“Once a registration form is submitted, no further communication will come from UAB until there is an appointment time available; that communication will come from Phreesia to confirm appointment locations and times,” UAB said in a release.
The Parker High School location is expected to have drive-through and walk-up lanes for people who access public transportation or live nearby.
Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin said his office worked closely with UAB to identify and set up the new site.
“I urge all Birmingham residents who meet the current Alabama Department of Health guidelines for vaccination to register,” he said. “If you have a loved one or friend who may need assistance registering, please offer to help.”
