  • If anyone you know has asked, “I received my first shot, but haven’t been given an appointment for my second shot. How will I get the second dose?” Let them know that the Health Department will call them to schedule their second appointment. In the future, individuals who receive their first shot will be given a QR code, which will list their second appointment.
  • A vaccination schedule is in the works for our teachers, and as that plan progresses, we will send you an update.
  • Many people are still unsure which vaccination phase they are in. To help with this, the Tennessee Department of Health launched an online eligibility tool, which can be found here: https://covid19.tn.gov/covid-19-vaccines/eligibility/?fbclid=IwAR3shXcRSrPqjynyNc8uRiaTe36bc7riSZl2fGkzVKiKQUJpih6pOM4l22w
