Tennessee is now offering eligible residents to make appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Tennesseans in Phase 1 of the state's COVID-19 Vaccination Plan and age 75 or older can now register for an appointment on the Tennessee Department of Health's website.
“We’re excited to begin this process to help deliver this vital service in the most efficient way possible while managing the limited and somewhat unpredictable supply of vaccines,” said Tennessee Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey, MD, MBA, FAAP, via FOX 17 News.
Residents can check to see if they're eligible for each phase on the Tennessee Department of Health's website.
Last week, the state of Tennessee has launched a new tool to help residents find out when they'll be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Governor Bill Lee announced a digital tool through TN.gov that will provide more information on eligibility on Tuesday (January 4) afternoon via Twitter.
"We have launched a new digital tool to help inform Tennesseans about their vaccine phase eligibility," Lee tweeted with the link to the questionnaire included.
Gov. Lee said the tool would "provide Tennesseans with critical information as our vaccine supply increases and more phases become eligible."
On Sunday, the Tennessee Department of Health announced a total of 653,869 cases, which includes 7,419 cases in a 24-hour span, 7,785 total deaths and 88,672 active cases.
