GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — One of the few places to receive the one-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine has been Wiregrass Wellness in Dothan.
The facility has been providing the vaccine to the public on an appointment-basis only.
Health care professionals said a lot of people like the idea of getting just one shot and not having to come back for a second one, which is the case for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
“Regardless of choice, the one which becomes available to you, you should become vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Dr. John Strunk of the Wiregrass Wellness Center. “The quicker we can reach a certain immunity, the quicker we can reach a normal life and get rid of these masks and some other things sort of hampering us, so its a good thing to get vaccinated, regardless of the vaccine which you choose.”
For those interested in receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine at the Wiregrass Wellness Center, call 334-673-8869 during regular business hours to set an appointment.
