Health officials in Alabama are asking for patience as the COVID-19 vaccine is slowly rolled out throughout the state. 

Vaccines are being prioritized for health care workers and long-term care residents, but health officer Scott Harris said the state expects to make the shots available to more people soon.

So far 42,000 shots had been administered out of the state's allotment of 226,000.
