Current Patients  |  General Public

If you don't see an appointment that is convenient for you, check back. We add new appointments as we get new shipments of vaccine. 

Teens and adolescents younger than 18 must be with a parent or guardian, who can get their vaccine at the same time.

We'll bill your insurance for a small fee to help cover costs of giving you the shot. But you won't get a bill, even if you don't have insurance.

We're scheduling COVID-19 vaccination at 2 locations in Nashville:

  • For those age 12 to 18 at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital
  • For all ages 12 and older at Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks

We're giving the Pfizer vaccine in these locations. This is the only vaccine approved for those age 12 to 15. The second dose is given 21 days after the first.

What if I don't live in or near Nashville?

Our 3 community hospitals are working with local health departments in Wilson, Bedford and Coffee counties to give COVID-19 vaccines.

What to do after your COVID-19 vaccine

After your first shot, we encourage you to register for V-safe.

V-safe is a smartphone tool made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It’s for people who’ve gotten their COVID-19 vaccines. The tool is a great way to help us all learn more about the vaccine.

How V-safe works:

  • It uses text messaging and web surveys to check how you’re doing after you get your shots.
  • You can use it to tell the CDC about any side effects you have after either shot. Based on what you say, they may call you back to learn more about what’s going on.
  • It can also send you reminders about your second vaccine dose.
