Schedule your vaccine with Vanderbilt Health

Vaccines are now readily available at many locations outside Vanderbilt, including pharmacies like Walgreens and CVS, retail clinics and other locations. You can also find other locations close to you at Vaccines.gov.

At VanderbiltHealth, we offer vaccines for ages 12 and older at Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks, 719 Thompson Lane,  and for babies and toddlers under at 18 months at Monroe Carell Jr. Hospital at Vanderbilt on the 21st Avenue campus.

We don't offer the vaccine at our walk-in clinics or Vanderbilt pharmacies.

Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital's primary care clinics offer vaccines for children under 12 by appointment. If your child is in this age group and not a Vanderbilt patient, please talk to your pediatrician or use the Vaccines.Gov link below to find a vaccine near you.

What else you need to know:

  • If you don't see an appointment that is convenient for you, check back, or use Vaccines.gov to find a vaccination at another location.
     
  • If your appointment is for a booster or later dose, please bring your vaccination card or other documentation of your previous doses.
     
  • If you are eligible for a vaccine or booster, and already have an appointment scheduled with a Vanderbilt primary care provider, you may ask to get the vaccine at that appointment.
     
  • Teens and adolescents younger than 18 must be with a parent or guardian.
     
  • We'll bill your insurance for a fee to help cover costs of giving you the shot. But you won't get a bill, even if you don't have insurance.

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

You can find COVID-19 vaccines through Tennessee county health departments, the Kentucky department of health website and on the Centers for Disease Control's Vaccines.gov website.

    You can feel good about getting your COVID-19 vaccine by learning more. Here are some resources from Vanderbilt Health and other trusted experts.

    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.
