Health Department No Longer Making Appointments For COVID-19 Vaccine; Gives Guidance For Lost Vaccination Record Cards And Upcoming Vaccination Schedule

Friday, June 18, 2021

The Hamilton County Health Department is no longer making appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals may drive up to the Tennessee Riverpark vaccination site during operating hours to receive their first or second dose of the vaccine.

“We want to make this process as easy as possible so that we can eliminate barriers to getting vaccinated,” says Health Department Administrator Becky Barnes, “We now have the ability to accommodate anyone who shows up at the vaccination site, so there is no longer a need for the appointment system.”

June 30th is the last day that the Health Department will be accepting appointments. The Tennessee Riverpark vaccination site is open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

Those that have lost their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card may request a record of immunization through the Tennessee Department of Health. To submit a request, call 615-741-7247.

For additional assistance, call the COVID-19 Hotline at 423-209-8383.

Currently, 39.1 percent of the Hamilton County population is fully vaccinated, and 43.7 percent of the population is at least partially vaccinated. 

“While the Hamilton County fully vaccinated rate continues to increase, we are falling behind other metropolitan areas in Tennessee and the United States,” says Ms. Barnes. “Our rates need to be much higher to protect our community and avoid a potential resurgence. There is a lot of capacity to immunize in the community. We want to encourage everyone not yet vaccinated to take advantage of this opportunity available to them.”

The vaccine data dashboard is updated every weekday and is available here.
 
Free Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination events will be offered at multiple locations this week. No appointment is necessary, and anyone 12 years of age and older is eligible.

Roy Exum: Defunded Police Stagger

But now the “chickens have come home to roost” and those hand-twisters like Seattle ... (click for more)
