Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey received the first of two doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on Monday afternoon at Baptist Medical Center South in Montgomery. Registered Nurse Donna Pugh administered the shot.
Ivey praised the scientists, medical professionals and the Trump administration for their commitment to creating and distributing a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris and State Chief Health Medical Officer Dr. Mary McIntyre also received a dose of the vaccine.
