The Alabama Department of Senior Services is working to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations amongst elderly and disabled communities.

The agency will work with private organizations to use a telephone hotline to help people reach local services and make vaccination appointments.

Alabama's vaccination rate is one of the lowest in the country while 252 people are currently hospitalized because of the virus.
