The light at the end of the tunnel? COVID-19 vaccinations are becoming more readily available throughout the United States which means we may be finding ourselves stepping into the world we once knew again.
The three available vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson are providing individuals with the protection and immunity necessary to open the country back up. These vaccines were thoroughly tested through clinical trials and are deemed safe by the CDC. (Link https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines.html)
Over this past weekend, Nashville held a large vaccination event getting 10,000 individuals vaccinated with the Johnson and Johnson 1 shot vaccine through a drive-through event at Nissan Stadium. This event helped push the percentage of Tennesseans who have had at least one vaccine to over 19%.
Tennessee is on track to have everyone over the age of 16+ eligible to get a vaccination by the beginning of April! Sites like https://vaccinefinder.org/search/ are available to help individuals get signed up through their county’s health department as well pharmacies that have vaccines in stock.
