Coronavirus Vaccine DoctorYour Chance for Priority Vaccination. Vaccines for COVID-19 have been authorized for emergency use by the FDA, and many Brookdale residents are included as a priority for COVID-19 vaccinations. Making the move to a Brookdale community like Brookdale University Park in Birmingham will provide you with an opportunity to receive the vaccine. New residents who move in at least two days prior to our scheduled vaccine clinic will be eligible to receive the vaccine.* Learn more about being in a priority group to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at our upcoming clinic by contacting Leanne Messer,, 205-613-0688.

*To be eligible to receive the vaccine a new resident must: (1) sign a residency agreement and satisfy all obligations specified in the agreement at least two days prior to the scheduled clinic date; (2) be available to attend the vaccine clinic; and (3)pass screening requirements at the time of the clinic. No respite or short-term stays will be eligible to participate. Independent Living residents may not be eligible depending on state directives. The vaccination occurs in two doses given approximately three to four weeks apart and requires a signed consent prior to administration.

Hope that we will be able to see her in person again soon, hope that a sense of normalcy is on the horizon for all and joy as we eagerly shared images from that day with our family and friends across the country. Babe turned 100 years old a few days after receiving her vaccine. She has certainly experienced and lived through some of our nation’s most memorable historical events during her lifetime. What an honor it is for her to make history by being the first resident at Brookdale University Park, and first person in our family, to bravely receive the groundbreaking vaccine. The Grainger family appreciates all that Brookdale has done to keep Babe well and love her unconditionally.” Mary Foster, Daughter of Brookdale resident Agnes (Babe) Grainger
