HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Huntsville and Madison County health officials continue to urge Alabamians to get vaccinated against COVID-19, now focusing on preventing any potential holiday surge.
"Some models are predicting a surge after the holidays after Christmas, and that is likely to hit in areas where there are low vaccination rates," said Crestwood Medical Center CEO Pam Hudson. "If you're not going to vaccinate, or you cannot vaccinate, then please adhere to the masking and be careful about indoor crowds."
Another expert empathizes with the Huntsville community knowing that all the precautions we have to take may not always be what we want to do.
I know we as a city we as a county are ready to just move on and live life and see the smiles on everybody's beautiful faces as we come together. But just remember over the holidays, be safe, be sensible," said Madison County Medical Society President Aruna Arora. "Don't put your vulnerable family members at risk."
