Health Department And Southern Adventist University Partner To Offer COVID-19 Vaccine Event On Sunday

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

The Hamilton County Health Department, in partnership with Southern Adventist University, will offer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to 1,000 individuals who make an appointment, this Sunday, at the Collegedale Church of Seventh-day Adventists. This community event is free and open to the public by appointment.

“We are grateful to partner with Southern Adventist University to offer COVID-19 vaccine in the Collegedale community,” said Hamilton County Health Department Administrator Becky Barnes.

First or Second Dose Moderna Appointments:

·       April 18 - Collegedale Church of Seventh-day Adventists, 4829 College Drive E, Collegedale, TN 37315

·       A second dose event will be offered when the time is due

Make An Appointment:

People are encouraged to visitvaccine.hamiltontn.govto make their appointment online. Those who do not have access to the internet can call the appointment call center to make an appointment over the phone:

·      Appointment Line: 423-209-5398

The Health Department’s general COVID-19 hotline 423-209-8383 is available to connect people to vaccine and testing resources. Hours are Monday-Friday from 8AM-4PM and Saturday 10AM-3PM. Bilingual representatives are available.
