Kaitlin Gebby reports: Tennessee Health Commissioner Dr. Lisa Piercey announced Tuesday that a vaccine from one of the major drug manufacturers could be in the state as early as Dec. 15.  She said the first doses are expected from Pfizer, a drug company whose vaccine has proven to be 95% effective in trials. The company is creating 6.4 million doses, but Piercey said the health department is uncertain how many they will receive in mid-December. Piercey said frontline healthcare workers, first responders and those who frequently come into contact with infected individuals will be offered the vaccine first, as part of the state’s Phase 1A portion of the vaccine distribution plan.
