Daily COVID-19 Standby List:

  • If you need a first dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine and you are available TODAY, please sign up on our standby list. You would be contacted between 2:30 and 4:00 p.m. and would need to be able to arrive at a central Knox County location in 30 minutes to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • This list will be cleared at the end of the day and will reopen to sign up at 9:30 a.m., meaning if you don’t receive a phone call to get a vaccine the day you sign up, you WILL need to sign up again on the next day that you are available. The list is first come, first serve daily for the first 30 people. If no doses are available, they will not be contacted.
  • If KCHD has extra vaccine at the end of their clinic and you DO get a call to receive your vaccine, please note this number could come from any local phone number. PLEASE DO NOT ignore phone calls during this time frame.
