Health Department director nominee discusses COVID-19, goals for the county


On Thursday, Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris nominated Dr. Michelle Taylor as director of the health department. Taylor’s nomination goes before the Shelby County Board of Commissioners’ General Government Committee on Wednesday. If approved, the full commission will vote on her appointment on July 26. Taylor would replace Alisa Haushalter, who resigned in February after state officials said the county mismanaged the vaccination program, including vaccinating children (who were not yet approved for vaccination) and wasting thousands of doses. Since then, LaSonya Hall has served as interim director.
