Cullman Regional establishes waitlist for those eligible for COVID-19 vaccine

According to Cullman Regional, completing the form will not necessarily guarantee an appointment with the vaccination clinic.

CULLMAN, Ala. — Cullman Regional has set up a waitlist for eligible community members that are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to Cullman Regional, completing the form will not necessarily guarantee an appointment with the vaccination clinic due to a limited supply of vaccine doses. If you join the waitlist, you will be contacted directly when an appointment is made available for you.

There will be no walk-ins accepted.

"We are actively working to get as many high-risk community members scheduled as possible," said Cullman Regional Vice President of Marketing Lindsey Dossey. "The quickest way for anyone to get on the waitlist is by filling out the online form."

The form can be found on Cullman Regional's website. For those without internet access, forms can be sent by mail to the following:

Cullman Regional

Attn: COVID VACCINE

PO Box 1108

Cullman, AL 35056

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a plethora of information on how to protect yourself and other from the coronavirus.  

The virus can easily spread from person to person, so the CDC recommends you stay at least 6-feet apart from people not in your household. The virus is spread through respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, breaths or talks, according to the CDC. Because of this, the CDC recommends you wear a cloth facemask when around others and in public. 

Additionally, the CDC recommends that you frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 

Symptoms to look out for include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, a sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea, according to the CDC.
