NOTE: Appointments for the February 11-12 clinic have been filled. The university will continue to work with the Knox County Health Department to hopefully offer more public vaccine clinics as soon as supplies allow.
The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in partnership with the Knox County Health Department, will host a COVID-19 vaccination clinic February 11–12 for eligible recipients.
This clinic will be by appointment only and held in accordance with the State of Tennessee’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan, which prioritizes recipients in phases based on risk or age. Currently in Knox County people in phases 1a1 and 1a2 or those age 70 and older are eligible to receive the vaccine. The state has a COVID-19 vaccine eligibility tool to help people determine their status.
To schedule an appointment, go to signupgenius.com/go/UTvaccineclinic. The online sign-up page includes the required consent form and additional information. Participants are asked to complete the consent form in advance of their appointment. Consent forms will also be available at the clinic.
For information about the clinic location, directions, and parking, contact the campus operators at 865-974-1000.
The clinic will be held Thursday, February 11, and Friday, February 12, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Pilot Company Ballroom on the second floor of the Student Union, 1502 Cumberland Avenue. Those attending should use the Cumberland Avenue entrance and follow signage to the ballroom.
Parking for the event is free at the Volunteer Hall Parking Garage, 1525 White Avenue. Signage will direct attendees to the Student Union, and shuttles will be available to transport individuals with mobility issues. Attendees will need to present the vaccination card they receive at the clinic to validate their parking when leaving the garage.
Approximately 700 doses of the two-dose Moderna COVID-19 vaccine will be distributed each day. Recipients will get information at the clinic about receiving their second dose.
