Tennessee Releases Vaccine Distribution Plan
Tennessee’s Department of Health has revealed its plan to distribute COVID-19 vaccines once they become available.
According to a news release, the agency submitted its draft proposal to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week. The plan was made public on Wednesday. Tennessee Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey said the plan will likely be modified as the state learns when and how many vaccines will be received. Currently, Tennessee is expected to get 2% of the national vaccine allocation, but the exact number is unclear. The health agency is seeking hospitals, pharmacies, clinics and other partners capable of storing vaccine and administering the vaccine.
