ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (WJHL) – Dozens of cars lined up in Carter County Monday to get the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination.

Among those in line were people age 75 and older. Tonia Sparks, an Elizabethton resident, was one of them.

Sparks said she came early to her 1:30 p.m. appointment and only had to wait 15 to 20 minutes.

“It was really a fast process,” Sparks said. “They have this down pat I think.”

David Craddock, 87, said he waited about a half hour for his 1:30 p.m. appointment.

“I’m just glad I have it,” Craddock said. “I feel a lot better.”

Those who are 75 and older and are interested in receiving the vaccine can call the Carter County Health Department to make an appointment.
