It’s a question many people in Giles County are asking: When, and where, can I receive a COVID-19 vaccine?
Unfortunately, there is no easy answer.
Information released Monday by the Tennessee Department of Health identifies which distribution phase each county is in and if there is an available vaccine.
The Tennessee Department of Health rolled out a new dashboard so people can track the progress of COVID-19 vaccinations in the state.
The COVID-19 vaccine reporting dashboard goes live Friday afternoon and will be updated every Tuesday and Friday.
This week Giles County was in the red, which shows no vaccine available.
Tennessee Department Health Director Dr. Lisa Piercey said daily state COVID-19 statistics, though, will now be reported later in the day no later than 5 p.m. starting immediately.
In the next phase, TDH officials are asking local health departments for people to make appointments and turn away ones that do not have an appointment.
