As Phifzer and Moderna gave the nation encouraging news of Coronavirus Vaccines, Tennessee officials said the state will be ready to begin distribution of the vaccines as early as December 1st. In their remarks, Governor Bill Lee and Health Commissioner Dr.Lisa Piercey were clear in their remarks, widespread distribution of any Covid 19 vaccine probably won’t be available until this coming Spring at the earliest. In the event that the Federal Drug Administration approves either or both of the vaccines, Piercey said doses will be on the way to healthcare professionals and vulnerable populations first, as soon as 24 hours after FDA approval. Piercey said both companies are expected to submit their findings to the FDA within a month. From there, she said the FDA could take days or weeks to issue a decision. If the vaccines are approved, distribution can begin within 24 hours. The vaccination plan details three phases of distribution, putting healthcare workers and first responders first in line, followed by outpatient healtcare workers and high-risk groups such as older adults in congreate care.
