  • This week, TDH launched a new online scheduling tool for COVID-19 vaccination appointments.
    1. This site allows users to book their appointment at participating health department sites when they are eligible.
    2. Tennesseans can access the system at [Vaccinate.tn.gov]Vaccinate.tn.gov, enter their demographic information and choose a date and time for their vaccination appointment.
    3. As a reminder, Tennesseans in the state’s six metro counties should continue to consult their local health department for information on making an appointment.
  • Beginning next Monday, February 22, Tennesseans aged 65 and older and those in Phase 1b (includes K-12 teachers) are eligible for vaccination.
  • Tennessee reached 1,000,000 COVID-19 vaccines administered, with more than 10 percent of Tennesseans having received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Update on impact from weather conditions: Almost 113,000 vaccinations were provided in the past week, despite extreme weather conditions that forced several county health departments and providers to close and reschedule appointments. While dangerous winter weather conditions have delayed federal deliveries of COVID-19 vaccine, no doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been lost in Tennessee due to this week’s winter weather. TDH expects further disruption in vaccination activities throughout this week due to weather and is rescheduling vaccination appointments for those whose plans were delayed by weather-related closures.
