The most recently released data suggests Tennessee has a ways to go before reaching health officials’ projection of 200,000 vaccinations by the end of 2020.
Vaccination totals, which would normally be released on Friday, will not be posted until Saturday due to the Christmas holiday. Last week reports showed just over 24,000 people had been vaccinated.
That leaves them with just 3 days to make up the difference.
At the moment, vaccinations have been limited to frontline healthcare workers.
That changed Monday when Walgreens and CVS technicians will begin visiting more than 400 Tennessee long-term care facilities to provide vaccines to residents and staff.
The Tennessee Department of Health was asked Friday if it still anticipated reaching 200,000 vaccinations by the end of the year but did not get a response.
