Following an announcement that the county would begin vaccinating all adults age 16 and older, as of March 29, nearly 30% of Williamson County residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to data from the Tennessee Department of Health.

More than 108,000 vaccines have been distributed across the county, according to the TDH. While 29.69% have received one dose, 16.52% are fully vaccinated, meaning they have received two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.


Statewide, just over 21% of the population has received one dose, and more than 2.5 million doses have been distributed.
