The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, will host a public COVID-19 vaccination clinic Friday, March 19, for eligible recipients.
The clinic will be by appointment only. To receive a vaccine through the university, recipients must be in the risk-based or age-based phase for Knox County.
Eligible recipients will receive Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. Because it is a single-dose vaccine, only one appointment is required. Do not make an appointment if you have already received the first dose of another COVID-19 vaccine.
Currently in Knox County people in phases 1a1, 1a2, 1b, or 1c or those age 65 and older are eligible to receive the vaccine. The State of Tennessee has a COVID-19 eligibility tool to help people determine their status. Learn more about Tennessee age- or risk-based phases.
While the state includes those ages 16 and older with high-risk medical conditions in phase 1c, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is approved only for those age 18 and older. You must therefore be 18 or older to make an appointment.
