Ahead of Gov. Bill Lee's announcement that the state would offer COVID-19 vaccine to all adults age 16 and older regardless of phase or age, Williamson County health officials said residents can begin signing up for the vaccine as of March 24.

The Williamson County Health Department announced March 24 that all adults can now book an appointment through the state's registration system.

“We’re excited to announce the expanded eligibility to all residents aged 16 and older,” WCHD Director Cathy Montgomery said in a release. “The more people in Williamson County who choose to get their vaccinations, the sooner our community can return to normal day-to-day activities.”

Those who register through the state system will receive either a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine.

A number of other counties in the Greater Nashville area have also opened up through at least Phase 3 of the state COVID-19 vaccination plan.
