Officials with Williamson County announced Jan. 7 it will transition to using a waitlist system to administer COVID-19 vaccines in accordance with the Tennessee Department of Health.

The Williamson County COVID Priority List is currently only available to individuals eligible under the current phases of Tennessee's COVID-19 Vaccination Plan, which at this time includes those in Phases 1A1, 1A2, and residents age 75 and older.

Those who are eligible can sign up for the waitlist here. As of Jan. 7, more than 3,400 individuals had signed up.

Individuals are instructed to enter their information, and they will receive appointment information when a vaccine become available.

Prior to the sign-up list, the county had previously utilized an online schedule for appointments. That site will no longer accept sign-ups; however, appointments made through Jan. 20 will still be valid, according to the county.


For those not in Phases 1A1 or 1A2—which includes health care workers, first responders and those in long-term care facilities—residents can sign up to receive alerts for when their phase or age group becomes eligible here.

For those not sure which phase they will be in, the TDH has launched an online tool for residents to determine their eligibility. Residents can answer questions based on where they live, their type of employment and their age to determine which phase they may be in and to receive alerts as the state moves through phases. Find the online questionnaire here.
