12+ for COVID-19 Vaccine Starting Thursday

NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 12, 2021 – The Metro Public Health Department will begin offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to those 12 and older following approval by the CDC and FDA.  Pfizer vaccine will be available those 12 and older starting Thursday at the Drive-Thru Vaccination Clinic located at 2491 Murfreesboro Road (former Kmart) and the Recover Vaccine Clinic at 1207 Jefferson Street.

Pharmacies, groceries, walk-in clinics, and health care providers that are currently offering the Pfizer vaccine will also expand to the 12 and older age group.

The Health Department will also begin offering the vaccine without an appointment to those age 12 and older at our community events (please see the following link that is updated daily.)
