FROM CUMBERLAND CO MAYOR ALLEN FOSTER:
Vaccination Phase Update
The 89 Health Departments operated by the State of Tennessee, including the Cumberland County Health Department, has now moved into the 2a and 2b risk phases for vaccinations which includes critical infrastructure workers. They are also moving into the 55+ age groups for eligibility. If you are in any of these groups, you can sign up today!
Vaccination appointments are widely available across the state, with many rural Tennessee county health departments seeing only a fraction of their daily COVID-19 vaccination appointments filled. Tennesseans eligible for COVID-19 vaccination can visit https://vaccinate.tn.gov/ to book their vaccination appointment at their county health department.
Information on other vaccination locations in the community is available at https://vaccinefinder.org/search/. These sites include retail pharmacies, independent pharmacies, hospitals, federally qualified health care centers, and faith-based health clinics.
