Northeast TN Health Departments now booking appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations
Northeast Tennessee residents eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine can now book online appointments to get the first dose through their county health department.
This includes those who live in the counties of Carter, Greene, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Unicoi, and Washington, individuals included in the state’s vaccination plan under Phase 1a1 and 1a2, as well as those ages 75 and older.
Registration can be completed for an appointment on the Tennessee Dept. of Health website.
Steps include the following: click on your county on the map and then click “Make an Appointment” to register. Users will be asked to enter their name and contact information to be notified of their appointment date, time and location.
Individuals can also call to register through the Northeast Region Vaccination Registration line at 423-979-4689, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m-4:30 p.m.
TDH notes once you have received your first dose, you will not need to register for a second dose, as the county health department will call you with second dose appointment information.
