As Alabama schools prepare to reopen and COVID-19 surges again statewide, upcoming events are offering incentives for vaccinations and back-to-school give-aways. 

The Alabama National Fair will offer free tickets when people get vaccinated at clinics starting Saturday. 

The city of Montgomery, Montgomery County, Montgomery EMA, Montgomery Public Schools and the Alabama Department of Public Health have partnered in the  back-to-school vaccination clinics. 

The first dose clinic will be Saturday, July 31, at Garrett Coliseum, located at 1555 Federal Dr. from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. An ID and insurance card, if you have one, are requested. Entry to the clinic will be across from Walmart Market at the north entrance of the Coliseum. 

Second doses will be administered on Aug. 21 at the coliseum from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m., and from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Aug. 22. The Alabama National Fair will offer free tickets upon the second dose. 

Reaching the Remnant Ministries is sponsoring Community Connection Days in Montgomery on July 31 and Aug. 7. 

The events, located at the Map Center at 10 East Delano Avenue, will provide free book bags, on-site COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, cleaning and hygiene supplies, face masks and more. For more information text 334-467-1678 or email [email protected]
