COVID vaccine clinic at U.S. Space & Rocket Center

USSRC partners with Huntsville Hospital to host the event on Thurs., August 4.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is partnering with Huntsville Hospital to hold a COVID-19 vaccination clinic. Registered nurses from Huntsville Hospital will provide the first dose of the two-part Pfizer vaccine. 

Thursday, August 5, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., you can go to the lobby of the Davidson Center for Space Exploration to get your first Pfizer shot. Second shots will take place on Thursday, August 26, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. No appointment is necessary.

As an incentive for getting vaccinated at the clinics, the Space & Rocket Center is issuing stickers for access to the Davidson Center’s Saturn V Hall for those receiving their first shot. When you get your second shot at the clinic, you'll receive a ticket to visit the entire center either on the day of the clinic or another day of their choice.
