Health Department Vaccine Distribution
Vaccines are being administered Mondays through Fridays by the Williamson County Health Department at the Williamson County Agricultural Center at 4215 Long Lane in Franklin. Vaccine administration is outside of testing hours.
An appointment given by the TN Department of Health is required for a vaccination, and appointments will be limited based on vaccine availability. Currently only those in Phase 1a1, 1a2 and are 75 years of age or older are eligible to receive an appointment.
Per the Tennessee Department of Health, while the vaccine supply is limited, it is necessary to prioritize who gets a vaccine. People who are at highest risk of contracting the virus or who may become seriously ill will be eligible to receive the vaccine first. Vaccines are administered in accordance with Tennessee's Vaccine Distribution Plan.
"How do I register to receive my vaccine?"
In accordance with the Tennessee Department of Health, the Williamson County Health Department is transitioning to administering vaccines using a waitlist system, named the "Williamson County COVID Waitlist."
Phase 1a1, 1a2, and Individuals 75+
The "Williamson County COVID Waitlist" is currently only available to those individuals who meet the Tennessee COVID Vaccination Plan’s current phases in Williamson County: Phase 1a1, 1a2, and individuals 75 years of age or older. Only those who are in these phases or this age group may register for the vaccination at this time.
Individuals currently eligible can enter their information into the sign-up portal to be placed on the waitlist for a vaccine appointment. As soon as vaccines become available, they will receive appointment information directly from the Tennessee Department of Health. To place your name on the waitlist, visit https://www.signupgenius.com/go/williamson_priority_list.
The date listed on the waitlist signup page is NOT your appointment time. The Tennessee Department of Health will email or call you with your appointment time at a later date. You only need to sign up once.
Those who are vaccinated in Williamson County could receive either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals will receive information regarding which vaccine is currently being administered when they arrive for their scheduled appointment.
The vaccination appointments site will no longer accept sign-ups by individuals. Individuals who already have appointments scheduled through January 20th are still valid.
Information on the current phases and waitlists for each county can be accessed through the state's vaccination page.
For step-by-step instructions on how to add your name to the waitlist, see the slideshow at the bottom of this page.
All Other Phases
Individuals who are not eligible for any of the current phases should sign up for the Williamson County Vaccine Availability Alert System at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QR3TZSL.
When additional phases or age groups become eligible, the Williamson County Emergency Management Agency will send an alert via text, phone call or email that defines what steps individuals should take to receive the vaccine.

"Am I allowed to receive my vaccine in a different county?"
You may get your vaccine in either your county of work or residence. If one of those is not Williamson County, then you will need to contact the particular county you are wanting to register in. You must use their sign-up sheet in order to be guaranteed a spot.
Keep in mind that you must get your second dose in the same county as your first dose. You will schedule your second dose during your first dose appointment.

If you received your first dose prior to 1/8/21, you will be contacted with an assigned date and time frame for your second dose via the contact information that you used for your sign-up.
If you receive your first dose starting 1/8/21 and on, you will scan a QR code with your phone while on site at the Ag Center, and choose from one of four days to schedule your second dose.
