Today the Birmingham City Council unanimously approved a resolution that opens the door for potential vaccination sites to be set up at Legion Field and recreation centers across the city.
Council President William Parker explained that the Coronavirus Pandemic Response resolution will allow for testing, vaccination and related activities at Legion Field and all city-owned recreation centers in Birmingham.
The Biden Administration has announced efforts to ensure that historically underserved communities will have equitable access to COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
President Parker said the Council is focused on all of Birmingham’s 99 neighborhoods having access to vaccination distribution.
“We are entering into a very crucial time in our fight against COVID-19. As we’ve seen a spike in the number of cases, nationally and on a local level, it’s critical that vaccines are distributed as quickly and as efficiently as possible,” Parker said. “It’s going to take cooperation from the federal level down to our residents coming to get vaccinated. Legion Field has been a very successful testing site and we believe that success can be translated into getting these vaccines to our residents.”
