The Metro Public Health Department announced that it will host a huge drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination event on March 20. The event will be located in Lots A, B, C and D at Nissan Stadium in downtown Nashville.
The event will take place from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m., with the health department planning to distribute doses to 10,000 Nashvillians in phases 1a, 1b and 1c of the state's vaccination plan, along with residents 65 and older. Online registration for the one-day event will begin March 10 via covid19.nashville.gov.
"Once an individual makes their appointment, they will receive a confirmation email that must be presented upon arriving at the event," according to a press release. Metro also notes the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be the only one provided at the event. Vaccinations will take place by appointment only, with no walk-ups accepted — also, T-Rac and the Titans cheerleaders will be there.
Nashville — along with the state of Tennessee at large — moved into vaccination phase 1c on March 8. This phase includes people with conditions that can compromise the immune system or increase complications from infection, along with pregnant women and some others.
