Tennessee making plans for COVID-19 Vaccines

The Tennessee Department of Health announced the state’s plan for distributing COVID-19 vaccines once they become available.

Department officials said they developed a structure for allocating and distributing vaccines:

  • Five percent of COVID-19 vaccines will be distributed evenly among all 95 counties.
  • 10 percent of vaccines will be reserved by the state for use in targeted areas with high vulnerability to illness and death from the virus.
  • 85 percent of vaccines will be distributed among all 95 counties based on their populations.

Tennessee Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey said the distribution plan is subject to change depending on the availability of approved vaccines.
