ALL COVID-19 VACCINATIONS WILL NOW BE GIVEN AT COBB PARR PARK IN COVINGTON FOR SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS ONLY (ENTRANCE IS OFF OF BERT JOHNSTON AVE).  You do NOT need to schedule an appointment for the 2nd vaccine, the Health Department will contact you with an appointment time. PLEASE, if you are in line to receive a vaccine, HAVE YOUR ARM READY!! We are trying to move people as quick as possible and having to get out of your vehicle to take a coat, shirt, off kills the process on time.

The number one question that’s being asked now is “Do I need to call to set appointment for 2nd vaccine”? According to the TN Dept. of Health, the answer is NO the TDH will call you with an appointment time.

Question 2. Will they run out of vaccines before I get my 2nd dose? According to the TDH, the answer is NO, they have reserved your second vaccine, and it will be the same kind/brand as the first vaccine.

If you do not get your 2nd vaccine exactly on the scheduled day that is on your card, it is ok to run 2-3 days past. What cannot happen is to get your vaccine any time prior to the scheduled 2nd date.
