The zoo said it has partnered with the Metro Public Health Department to offer the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the two-shot Pfizer vaccine to anyone 12 or older.

“We recognize that some of our staff and possibly our guests may not necessarily have easy access to the vaccine, so we reached out to the Health Department and were able to bring the opportunity right to the Zoo,” Andy Tillman, the Nashville Zoo’s Chief Operations Officer, said in a statement Thursday.
