SHELBY CO., Tenn. (WMC) - The Shelby County Health Department has released the COVID-19 vaccine schedule for the week of February 22 through February 27, 2021.

The health department said it’s partnering with other agencies to make-up vaccinations for those whose appointments were canceled due to inclement weather and some limited new appointment availabilities.
