Tennessee Department of Health on Omicrion COVID-19 Variant

The Tennessee Department of Health is monitoring the new Omicron COVID-19 variant situation closely. Commissioner Dr. Lisa Piercey says she’s been briefed by both the CDC and White House within the last 48 hours. She says there are no confirmed cases of the omicron variant in Tennessee.

Dr. Piercey says the most effective tool against any variant is the vaccine. Everyone ages 18 and older should get a booster shot either when they are 6 months after their initial Pfizer or Moderna series or 2 months after their initial Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
