Senior Alabama residents will soon be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Shots had been limited to health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities, but they will now be available to those 75 years or older and later first responders. Those eligible can get their first dose starting Jan. 18. 

The expansion was announced by Gov. Kay Ivey on Friday who said the state wants as many people as possible to get vaccinated.
