ACDD Holds Local COVID Vaccination Clinic for those with Developmental Disabilities

The Alabama Council on Developmental Disabilities (ACDD) is conducting a COVID vaccination clinic for those with developmental disabilities and their families. The clinic is a joint effort of the ACDD, the Alabama Disability Advocacy Program (ADAP), University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD), Independent Living Center of Mobile, and the University of Alabama School of Social Work.

ACDD COVID Vaccination Clinic

10 am – 1 pm

Hank Williams Museum

127 West Rose Street, Georgiana, Butler County

There is no cost for the vaccine. Those who attend the clinic are encouraged to wear a face mask.

“In the past, it’s been difficult for some with developmental disabilities to get vaccinated against COVID,” said Darryle Powell, Executive Director of the ACDD.  “With a designated vaccination clinic for them in the area where they live, we hope to make it much easier. It’s important that all Alabamians have access to the vaccine to protect themselves and those around them from the effects of the coronavirus.”
