Cullman Regional has created an online scheduling system so that patients can self-schedule for a vaccine appointment.
Appointments are available by visiting: www.CullmanVaccine.com.
• Vaccines are available by appointment only. Appointment Dates/Times are only released 5 days prior to vaccine clinic days to make sure we have plenty of vaccines to administer for all appointments created. If no appointments are available, please check back the following day for more appointment openings.
• The Vaccine Clinic is located at the Cullman Regional Urgent Care Center (1958 AL Hwy 157, Cullman, AL 35058).

Visiting Cullman Regional:
As a reminder, Cullman Regional upholds visitation restrictions in accordance with CDC guidelines.
These restrictions include:
• All visitors must check-in and complete a temperature check at the front desk

Visitors to the Cullman Regional Medical Group Clinics must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status and only 1
visitor is allowed per patient; or 2 visitors per minor under the age of 16.
*Emergency Department Restrictions
• Due to the influx of COVID positive cases and out of an abundance of caution, no visitors are allowed in the
Emergency Department. Limited exceptions will be made on a case by case basis. In those limited exceptions, we
will only allow (1) visitor/caregiver who will not be allowed to rotate with any other visitor during the patient’s
stay in the Emergency Department to limit unnecessary exposures.
