SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County Health Department announced Monday that it is taking more appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations.

Currently, the vaccinations are available to anyone aged 75 and up. They’re also being offered to emergency responders and all health care professionals, residents at long-term care facilities, and personnel at mortuary services.

People who have already registered for vaccination don’t need to do so again, officials said.

Those who are looking to register now can do so at covid19.tn.gov/covid-19-vaccines/ vaccine-phases/ or by calling 865-453-1032.

People trying to determine whether they are eligible can find out by going to covid19.tn.gov/covid-19-vaccines/eligibility/.

“The COVID-19 vaccine supply is still limited, and availability will vary by county,” said Emma Davis, director of the county health department.

“The Sevier County Health Department will announce additional opportunities for residents to receive vaccinations as vaccine supplies become available, and as the county moves to new phases of the vaccination plan.”

Meanwhile, the Tennessee Department of Health reported no new deaths or hospitalizations from the virus among Sevier County residents over the weekend.

Active cases of the virus dropped to 961.

The state reported 157 positive tests over the weekend from among 899 total returned, for a positivity rate of 17.5%.
