NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) — Metro Nashville will open a COVID-19 vaccination site at Music City Center this weekend.

 

Mayor John Cooper told reporters Thursday the city is preparing for when more vaccines are available. The two million square foot convention center is large enough to support mass vaccinations.

 

Cooper reported that Metro has, to date, vaccinated roughly 74 percent of all city residents in the first phase of the immunization plan, group 1a. That group includes health care workers, first responders and residents 75 and older.

 

Metro health officials hope to begin vaccinating teachers and child care workers and more seniors in group 1b early next month.
