NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Over the weekend Nashville began vaccinating people over the age of 75 against the coronavirus.

1,200 doses were ready for those who had an appoint to receive the vaccine.

We encourage anyone age 75 or older who has not yet set an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine to join the waitlist.

As appts become available, those on the waitlist will be contacted to be vaccinated.

"We don't want our 75 and up standing out in the cold, so the way we have it set up today is to do about 150 vaccines every two hours," Todd said.

Each person vaccinated will receive a vaccination card at the end of their appointment letting them know when to come back for their second shot.

The card also lets them know whether they received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
