Nashville, TN (TN Tribune)–Nashville will hold a mass vaccination drive-through Saturday, March 20th at Nissan Stadium for residents 65 and older or those eligible in Phase 1c.
All 10,000 vaccine appointments for the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine were claimed after two hours of registration. An appointment is required to receive a vaccination.

A diverse lineup of four musical acts will perform bluegrass, country, rock, and soul music throughout the day for vaccine recipients waiting in line.
In addition to live musical guests, vaccine recipients will be greeted by members of the Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders and Nashville’s team mascots T-Rac, Gnash, Booster the Rooster, and Tempo the Coyote.
Additional drive-thru vaccine events will be planned in coming weeks in other areas of Nashville, based on the availability of vaccine.
