 Tennessee to offer virus vaccine to those 70 and older

Tennesseans aged 70 and older will soon begin receiving the COVID-19 vaccinations.

According to the state Department of Health, Tennesseans must check with their counties to learn more about information about eligibility and registration.

Furthermore, residents in the state’s metropolitan areas may have different instructions.

The health agency estimates roughly 300,000 Tennesseans fall in the 70-74 age group.

The state is already vaccinating people 75 and older.

It’s expanding the vaccination access due to a recent increase in this week’s COVID-19 vaccination allocation, up from an average of 80,000 doses to about 93,000 for the week.
