Tennessee Governor Bill Lee announced last week that the Covid-19 vaccine will be available for anyone over the age of 16 by April 5.
People over the age of 16 are currently able to register for the vaccine in most Tennessee counties with the exception of Davidson and Hamilton counties where the minimum age remains at 55.
Under Davidson county’s current eligibility guidelines, people over the age of 16 with high-risk health conditions such as severe asthma or diabetes can register to receive the vaccine.
To find out if you are eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, you can take the screening questionnaire on Tennessee’s official Covid-19 website. When you are eligible, you can register for a vaccination appointment through the Tennessee Department of Health or other vaccination centers such as your local pharmacy.
Update: As of March 31, all Davidson County residents 16 and older are eligible to register to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. Appointments are available for the next two weeks at the Music City Center in Nashville and can be scheduled online or by calling 615-862-7777.
Lumination will continue to provide information about Covid-19 vaccinations as it becomes available.
