New dashboard available for COVID signups

The Tennessee Department of Health has unveiled a new dashboard where people who qualify for vaccinations can easily sign up or find locations with vaccinations.

The new dashboard has two prompts that allow easy access. One prompt allows the user to request a vaccination with the health department. The prompt takes the user to a questionnaire to fill out and once the questionnaire is complete the user can then find an appointment and make it.

The second prompt is for vaccination locations. After pressing this prompt, it takes the user to an area map showing all the available locations with vaccines in the area. The user can then tap on each individual location and find the phone number for the participating pharmacy.

In some cases, like Walmart it has a prompt you can hit taking you to Walmart’s vaccine registration.
