Health Department Closes Tennessee Riverpark Vaccination site and Moves COVID-19 Vaccines to East 3rd Street Campus Beginning Tuesday, February 15

HAMILTON COUNTY, TN – The Hamilton County Health Department will begin administering all COVID vaccines at the East 3rd Street campus, beginning Tuesday, February 15 and will subsequently be closing the Tennessee Riverpark vaccination site.

“We want to thank Hamilton County Parks and Recreation for working with us during our time at the Riverpark.  Moving our vaccine site to our East 3rd Street campus provides our staff shelter from the elements and eliminates potential cancellations due to inclement weather,” says Hamilton County Health Department Administrator Sabrina Novak. “It also allows us to be able to consolidate all of our vaccine efforts into one building so that individuals of all age groups can come to one location.”

East 3rd Street Campus, 921 East 3rd St Chattanooga, TN 37403.

  • Tuesday-Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
