Governor Lee announced today that all Tennessee adults will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccination effective April 5. Tennesseans aged 55 and older and those in Phase 2 of the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan are eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations beginning Mar. 22.
Tennessee continues to see increasing supplies of COVID-19 vaccines, which allows the state to rapidly accelerate eligibility to receive the vaccination. TDH requests every dose of COVID-19 vaccine made available to the state:
- 2.9 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been delivered to Tennessee providers to date
- Expecting approximately 163,000 vaccine doses week of March 22
- Anticipate receiving increased allocations of Johnson and Johnson vaccine week of March 29, which could increase weekly supplies by 30 percent
