HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - The Huntsville-area COVID-19 team held their last weekly community briefing for a while.

Huntsville-Madison County EMA Director Jeff Birdwell was joined by CEO of Crestwood Medical Center Dr. Pam Hudson and Regional Dean at UAB School of Medicine – Huntsville Dr. Roger Smalligan.

Dr. Smalligan spoke on those who believe the government may be trying to control their lives. He doesn’t believe that’s the case and asked those who do to separate that idea and the COVID-19 vaccine.

“I personally don’t think that’s what’s going on here,” Dr. Smalligan said. “But even if you think that’s what’s going on, separate that from the COVID vaccine issue and just say I’m going to do this for my own health and for the health of my family and those in my community and do it for your health reason.”

Birdwell said that the team would stop doing weekly meetings and instead do bi-weekly meetings. The next meeting will be on December 8, at 12:00 p.m.
