Huntsville Hospital’s Fever and Flu Clinic is replacing John Hunt Park for COVID-19 vaccine shots.

The change in locations comes after a decline in demand for vaccinations. The original clinic was inoculating 1,100 people a day at the peak of the pandemic. That number has since dropped to about 300.

Emily Lambert is the supervisor for the Fever and Flu clinic. Lambert said relocation has been anticipated and will likely be more sustainable.

“We were renting the space from the city of Huntsville. We knew that was not going to be a long term solution to COVID vaccination, but it was a good way to mass vaccinate people when it first rolled out,” she said.   

Lambert said the change in location has been a beneficial move by the city.  

“So far it’s been good. Tuesday was our first day of vaccinations and it went well, and we look forward to doing vaccinations at the clinic every Tuesday and Friday,” she said.   

John Hunt Park will still offer second doses to those who got their first vaccinations last month. The Fever and Flu Clinic will fully take over the city’s vaccination efforts on Friday.
