RE: COVID-19 Vaccine Information



COVID-19 vaccines are anticipated to be approved by the FDA soon. The federal government will be covering the cost of the vaccine and allocating the vaccine throughout the state. Below are anticipated coverage expectations for the Alabama Medicaid Agency (Medicaid). Specific provider information regarding COVID-19 vaccine administration will be published as it becomes available.


Alabama Medicaid will allow reimbursement of a vaccine administration fee to Medicaid providers who utilize federally-allocated COVID-19 vaccines.


  • Payment rates for COVID-19 vaccine administration will be $28.39 to administer single-dose vaccines.
  • For a COVID-19 vaccine requiring a series of two or more doses, the initial dose(s) administration payment rate will be $16.94, and $28.39 for the administration of the final dose in the series.
  • These rates recognize the costs involved in administering the vaccine, including the additional resources involved with required public health reporting, conducting important outreach and patient education, and spending additional time with patients to answer any questions they may have about the vaccine.


To receive, administer, and report COVID-19 vaccines, healthcare providers must enroll in the ADPH’s ImmPRINT COVID-19 Vaccination Program. Follow the steps in the ImmPRINT Registration Roadmap to enroll.
