As Tennessee’s only public statewide, academic health system, the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is committed to providing information to the communities we serve about important health issues. The College of Medicine and the university have been leaders in informing the public about the novel coronavirus (SARS CoV-2) and in battling the disease it is causing (COVID-19).
The coronavirus pandemic began in late 2019 and continues. While vaccinations show promise of easing the pandemic at some point, knowledge and information related to the virus continue to emerge. The information and advice offered on UTHSC’s Coronavirus Disease Information and Resources page is based on the best available knowledge about the virus, as well as local, national, and global efforts to combat it. There are many good sources of information linked on the Resources sub-page, which is updated frequently. This includes information on public testing and vaccinations.
