To help residents understand how they will receive the coronavirus vaccine, the Williamson County Health Department has launched a vaccine distribution website to help answer questions and to sign up to be alerted when they are eligible to receive the vaccine according to Tennessee's COVID-19 Vaccination Plan.

Currently, the county is only vaccinating individuals in phases 1A1 and 1A2, which include frontline workers, first responders, health care workers, and staff and residents in long-term care facilities. The county has also begun working to vaccinate residents age 75 and older.

To date, more than 120,000 vaccines have been administered statewide, and just over 2% of Williamson County's population has received a first dose.

Those who qualify to be included in those phases can register for a vaccine appointment online here.

Residents who are not eligible for the first phases should not register for an appointment. Residents are encouraged to continue checking for open appointments in the coming days if spots are full. Appointments are currently limited based on vaccine availability, according to the WCHD.


The WCHD is currently administering both the Moderna and Pfizer BioNTech vaccines. Residents will not be able to choose between the two, according to the county.

Those who are not eligible to receive the vaccine in the current phases can register online to receive an alert once they are eligible to make a vaccine appointment. The registration form can be found here.

Those eligible to receive the vaccine who need help scheduling an appointment can call the Williamson County Vaccine Scheduling Phone Line at 615-595-4880 from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

While residents are permitted to go to other counties to receive the vaccine, they will have to register with that county. Additionally, not all counties are in the same phases of vaccination. Larger counties, such as Davidson County, are still in the very early phases of distribution and have not yet begun vaccinating residents age 75 and older. A full list of counties and their vaccination status can be found here.
