Vaccines will be provided only to those who received first doses during the December 28th – January 3rd timeframe.

The health department said not to schedule an appointment if you have not already received a first dose of vaccine. First-dose appointments for those currently eligible to be vaccinated will be offered in February with separate signup links.

Those without internet access or who otherwise need assistance may call the COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline (901) 222-SHOT [7468] for help in setting an appointment. That line is staffed 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., seven days a week.

Shelby County Health Department’s COVID-19 vaccination plan follows the Tennessee Department of Health’s COVID-19 vaccination plan.

Currently, the Health Department is vaccinating first responders and health care workers listed in Phases 1a1 and 1a2, funeral/mortuary workers, persons age 65+ with high-risk medical conditions, and all persons age 75+.

The health department will add other vaccination sites throughout the county as the vaccine campaign moves forward. For more information, check the health department's website.
