MOBILE, Ala. (July 6, 2021) To protect as many people as possible against COVID-19, members of the USA Health Pandemic Response Team recently began offering vaccine injections to homebound residents who are referred by a healthcare provider.
“Because not everyone can leave their homes to receive the shot, we are sending staff members out when requested to ensure everyone who wants a vaccine can get one,” said Sarah Kahalley, R.N., M.S.H.A., director of clinical resources for USA Health Physicians Group. “We know the more people who receive the vaccination, the better our chances are of slowing the spread of the virus in our community.”

USA Health offers several convenient ways for members of the community to get vaccinated:
· Vaccines are offered on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at USA Health Strada Patient Care Center, 1601 Center Street in Mobile. No appointments are needed and walk-ups are welcome.
· You can self-schedule an appointment at the drive-through clinic located at the Mobile Civic Center Arena in downtown Mobile. To schedule at that location, visit usahealthvaccines.com
Since Dec. 15, 2020, USA Health has administered more than 75,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses to everyone from frontline workers to children as young as 12 years old.
