On Jan. 11, the Metro Nashville Public Health Department (MPHD) announced a “Standby List” starting on Tuesday, Jan. 12.

According to an Instagram post outlining the announcement, the list is open to all members of the public who are at least 18 years old and able to get to Five Points vaccination clinic by 3:00 p.m. CST. Vaccination recipients will be chosen randomly from the list at the end of the vaccination day. There will be a maximum of four vaccine recipients chosen per day, according to the post.

“Each vial of vaccine contains five doses, meaning that a maximum of four doses would be given through the Standby List,” the post said.

The Nashville Health Twitter account also confirmed that the selected individuals will receive a second dose at the recommended time.

 

The selected individuals will receive a phone call. The list will be cleared every day, and re-registration is allowed after every vaccination day. However, multiple entries are not permitted and will result in disqualification, per the post.

To be added to the list, members of the public must email [email protected] with a phone number.

It should not be this hard for anybody to sign up for this. I have tried and tried. I am 66 and is willing to wait my term. But think of a person who have a cell phone and living in a high rise. All they know is hello and goodbye. I still don’t know if my name is on a list or not. No fault of yours, the new world we live in. The new old is dying off. I wants to live to tell about it. Thanks continue to what you do.
