DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — As the number of people with COVID-19 keeps declining in the state, another medical facility in the Wiregrass helping to make getting a vaccine easier.

Pulmonary Associates in Dothan is opening its COVID-19 vaccine clinic to the public.

Anyone over the age of 18 can sign up to get the Moderna vaccine at the clinic.

An associate with the office says COVID-19 is still just as deadly, and the best protection is the vaccine.

That’s why the facility is making it as easy and simple as possible for the public.

“I think the risk of anything significant is very tiny, but the risk of getting very sick and possibly dying is very large,” Dr. Alan Purvis said. “I think it is to everyone’s benefit to come out here.”

Purvis said the pandemic is still ongoing, and the best way to defeat the virus is to get everyone vaccinated.
