NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee says he has received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Asked by a reporter Monday, the Republican said he had the initial Pfizer shot Saturday and will get the second dose in a few weeks.
He didn’t surround the inoculation with any fanfare, as he did when he tweeted out a photo of his flu shot last November.
Lee, who is 61, has said he was waiting his turn for the COVID-19 vaccine. All but a handful of Tennessee counties have now begun opening up vaccinations to anyone 16 or older.
