Doctors say you might still have to wear a mask even after getting the vaccine

Masks after COVID vaccines? By BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - We are starting to see a way out of this pandemic with healthcare workers getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

COVID-19 map data suggests mask mandate is working

State sees COVID-19 cases decline By BIRMINGHAM, Ala.

Dr. Wesley Willeford said about two weeks after the statewide mask order went into effect back in July, we started seeing a decrease in the number of new COVID-19 cases.
