PARIS — Henry County Medical Center continues to be a COVID-19 vaccination provider to the area, working with the State of Tennessee and the Henry County Health Department to vaccinate our community. The State of Tennessee is now open to anyone who wants to have a COVID-19 vaccine.
Due to the need, HCMC is offering the Pfizer vaccine with preference given to 16 and 17 years of age in the region. Pfizer is the only vaccine that is approved for those 16 and older. Those interested in the Pfizer vaccine are required to sign up.
The Pfizer vaccine will be offered the following dates at Henry County Healthcare Center Plumley Rehab Parking Lot:
First Dose – Saturday, May 8, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Second Dose – Saturday, May 29, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Mandatory sign ups can be secured by emailing Kelly Winston, Certified Healthcare Executive Assistant, at email@example.com or calling 731-363-3307 or 731-336-6155. Phone calls for sign-ups are taken daily between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The following information must be provided when signing up:
Date of Birth
Age as of May 8, 2021
Parent or Legal Guardian’s Name:
Phone Number of Parent if a Minor or Participant’s Number
For minors, a valid photo ID and a parent or guardian must accompany and remain present with the minor to receive the vaccination. If they are 18 or older, a parent or guardian is not required to accompany them.
The event is a Drive Thru event and participants are asked to enter the North Entrance to Hospital Circle from Tyson Avenue (this is the entrance closest to the Emergency Department Entrance). Participants will not be able to access the vaccine POD from the South Entrance.
Participants are expected to answer a few questions as well as remain on our HCHC Plumley Rehab Parking Lot for up to 30 minutes of observation after receiving the vaccine. If you have had COVID-19 within the last 60 days, you will not be eligible for the vaccination. Also, if you have reactions to shots or have allergies, you should consult your primary care provider before proceeding to have the vaccination. And, anyone receiving a vaccination during the community vaccination POD will need to complete the vaccination process by receiving the second dose at the same location 21 days after receiving the first one.
