All Clay County adults can now receive a COVID-19 vaccination.
On March 22, Governor Bill Lee announced all Tennessee adults would be eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations no later than April 5. Tennessee’s progressive move in age eligibility puts the state almost a month ahead of the federal goal of May 1. Moreover, most Tennessee counties, including Clay County, are now administering vaccines to all adults.
The Clay County Health Department is now administering COVID-19 vaccinations to anyone aged 18 and older. The easiest ways to book a vaccination appointment are either online at covid19.tn.gov or by calling 1-866-442-5301.
Clay County Health Department Director Matt Tuck said the health department has plenty of available appointments.
