COVID-19 Community Vaccinations
TN Vaccine Eligibility Tool
Use this tool to determine your COVID-19 vaccine distribution phase.
While the vaccine supply is limited it is necessary to prioritize who receives it, with people who are at highest risk of getting the virus or becoming seriously ill receiving it first. The state has worked with a group of stakeholders and followed federal guidance to develop a vaccine distribution plan.

2. Bring your filled out form with you.
EVENT 1: On Thursday, February 25, HCMC will have a Community COVID-19 Vaccination event inside the facility for those with scheduled appointments. Currently all appointments are already booked for this date. This is a first dose event and all participants scheduled will be guaranteed their shots during the appointment time they have been scheduled. Those that receive vaccine at these scheduled appointments will be asked to return on March 25 and will receive appointment cards at the event.
EVENT 2: On Wednesday, February 24, a drive thru Community COVID-19 Vaccination POD for those age 65 and older will be held starting at 9 a.m. until all vaccine is distributed. Volunteers and staff will be administering Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to anyone meeting criteria at a vaccination POD located at the Henry County Healthcare Center Plumley Rehab parking lot. Those that receive vaccine at these scheduled appointments will be asked to return on March 24 and will receive appointment cards at the event.
Participants are asked to download the vaccination form above or other media sites that have the form available. Additionally, the form will be printed in the Paris Post-Intelligencer on Tuesday, February 23. Forms will also be available at the event.
For the Drive Thru event, participants are asked to enter the North Entrance to Hospital Circle from Tyson Avenue (this is the entrance closest to the Emergency Department Entrance). Participants will not be able to access the vaccine POD from the South Entrance. For questions, please watch the guided POD process video as well as the video on FAQs below.
Drive Thru participants are expected to answer a few questions as well as remain on our HCHC Plumley Rehab Parking Lot for up to 30 minutes of observation after receiving the vaccine. If you have had COVID-19 within the last 60 days, you will not be eligible for the vaccination. Also, if you have reactions to shots or have allergies, you should consult your primary care provider before proceeding to have the vaccination. And, anyone receiving a vaccination during the community vaccination POD will need to complete the vaccination process by receiving the second dose at the same location 28 days after receiving the first one. This date is March 24 at 9 a.m. We will have postcards with return information to provide those vaccinated at the COVID-19 Community POD.
